Music student’s essay hits the right note in national competition

Teachers in Ontario’s elementary schools are required to teach music, but don’t necessarily have much knowledge of the subject. A UWindsor music student is hoping her research can help them to do a better job.

Jacqueline Kraay’s paper “Examining the Construction of Music Teacher Identity in Generalist Classroom Teachers: An Ethnographic Case Study” took top honours in the Canadian Music Educators’ Association’s 2012 undergraduate essay competition.
