the musical Les Misérables
the ninth-grade music accomplishment target in Arts and Humanities
The study investigates how the ninth-grade music accomplishment target is achieved through an action research involving teaching the musical Les Misérables to ninth-grade students. Two groups of thirty-five ninth-grade students each were selected from a junior high school in Changhwa County to participate in a six-week action research on the musical Les Misérables. Data were collected through a questionnaire survey on these students, as well as observations on their parent-teacher communication books, study lists and teaching journals. The findings of the study are as following: 1. The action research has been performed in accordance with the ninth-grade music accomplishment target established in the Arts and Humanities Accomplishment Target by the Ministry of Education. 2. Through the action research on the teaching of Les Misérables in the class, the researcher observes how students achieve the ninth grade music accomplishment target. A. Students are willing to challenge the complicate fingering of the sharps and flats in the musical excerpts, and they have learned to understand the meaning of modulation through practice. B. In the course, students learn to appreciate music through analyzing the compositional structure. C. During the process of appreciation, students appreciate not only cognitively on structure motives and modulation, but also affectively on performers’ timbre, voice and interpretation. D. Students learn to make comparison of performance art combining drama and music in different cultures. Besides, they appreciate the meaning of musical pieces in a multidimensional perspective and share their opinions with others. E. Students gain familiarity and interests in lyrics, melody, producer and other information related to the four musicals. F. Students are able to keep quiet during the appreciation process, and bestow high praise on the performance of the singers. G. Students approve and adore the musical performance, and exhibit strong interest in other similar musicals. They even listen enthusiastically to contents and repertoires in group presentations. Finally, the study offers further suggestion in curriculum design, teaching and future research.
