Abstract: This article discussed results of three research studies (Bastião, Menezes, Oliveira, 2009) developed in Brazilian universities aimed at continued education of music teachers. The first investigated the effects of a music appreciation approach (AME ) to facilitate the teaching of music appreciation for elementary grade students through a more conscious teacher preparation at the undergraduate course. The second study investigated the evaluative practices from 38 music teachers at public and private elementary schools, specialized music schools, NGOs and college education. The third study evaluated the effect of the PONTES, a theoretical approach to pedagogic articulation, in an experimental group of music teachers, as compared to a control group. Menezes and Oliveira´s studies used quantitative approaches to complement the analysis of the data. These studies used a questionnaire and the DEPEMUS test, created to evaluate the individual development and learning related to the PONTES approach. Oliveira´s study aimed to test the theoretical basis that may be applied during the process of teacher´s continued education, to help them to develop and apply their formal and informal knowledge. The PONTES approach has the purpose to articulate the various factors with custom-oriented procedures to facilitate teaching in the different socio-cultural contexts. This approach has been used as a theoretical foundation for the studies by Harder (2008), Bastião (2009), Vander Broock (2009) and Menezes (2009) studies, respectively applied to instrumental music teachers, under-graduated student-teachers, to young children music teachers and regular school music teachers. These studies share the objective to contribute to a more reflexive, significant and articulated practice among Brazilian music educators.

Abstract: Abstract: With the possible exceptions of Robert Hanssen and Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Aldrich Ames is remembered today as the most notable traitor to the United States during the Cold War. From 1957 to 1994, Aldrich Ames floated through the CIA’s bureaucracy serving as both an analyst and in the field as a clandestine agent. After volunteering his services to the Soviets in 1985 in exchange for a cash advance of $50,000, Ames became an indispensable asset to the KGB capable of securing the most sensitive secrets inside the CIA. This study examines his psychological motivations for committing treason and assesses the breadth and extent of his espionage and its damage to American national security interests.

Abstract: Through the use of personal correspondence and other primary documents, this paper builds on Lawrence Little’s Disciples of Liberty: The African Methodist Episcopal Church in the Age of Imperialism, 1884-1916 to examine power relations within the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church’s foreign missionary work in Suriname during the 1940s. By paying attention to a conflict between African American AME leaders, and a Surinamese born AME minister, evidence demonstrates that instead of African Americans using the rhetoric of proselytizing to uncivilized peoples, now a colonized, religious elite used the same rhetoric in an effort to access more power within the AME Church, which deeply troubled African American AME leaders. The effort of a colonized AME Church member to assert power, and the opposition he received from African American AME members, leads to questions about power, race, and imperialism during a time of massive decolonization efforts across the globe.

Abstract: This paper asserts that the Palenque/quilombo Diasporan`resistance tradition offers a model for contemporary Afrikan agency and`self-determination. As early as 1512 in Latin America and by 1655 in Jamaica, these maroons either allied with indigenous populations or formed stand alone independent realms and republics.The extremity of the situation, then as now, implored an urgent life-affirming response rooted in the Afrikan worldview. We are failing to empower the next generation of young Afrikans with memory ,purpose vision and adequate tools for survival. Instead we have abandoned them to a system that postures as “education “but is merely a web of mental entrapment and will killing called school.
The situation requires immediate action, not just scholarly attention. The school has become the new plantation and to be free, we must break away and reclaim ourselves The knowledge system it buttresses is deemed antithetical to Africentric interests. This paper asks us to affirm our own agency, examine an Afrikan worldview which sustained quilombos and palenques in their fight against slavery and genocide and fashion a strategy to cancel the atrophy of our children. The paper brings up points and alarming statistics which participants will be invited to address with a plan of action as the intended outcome.

Abstract: Major challenges present themselves in the panorama of music education in Brazil. This has led teachers to review their teaching practices and look for solutions to the new demands of the different educational contexts. On August 15, 2008 the President of Brazil approved the Law nº 11, 769. This law established the teaching of music in the different levels of Brazilian Basic Education (early childhood, elementary and high school) as a mandatory requirement. However, this law also stipulates the period of three years for education systems to adapt to this legal requirement. It means that at present there is a high demand for music teachers in Brazilian schools. According to this researcher's teaching experience at the Federal University of Bahia Music Education Course it is observed that the student-teachers are extremely concerned with the method of teaching they are adopting, in compliance with the lesson plan, but they demonstrate a very limited view in the practical and expressive possibilities dealing with the teaching of music. In master (1995) and doctorate (2009) research, both performed in elementary schools in Salvador-BA, the researcher observed that the music appreciation is a poorly developed activity and has not attracted the attention and interest of children and young people in schools. One possible reason for this occurrence is that music teachers do not have the skills to develop activities when they put a song for the students to listen to. In general, the methodology used emphasizes analysis of the musical structures and style, life and work of composers and the musical repertoire does not meet the multicultural demands. The result of these experiences, as well as the theoretical foundation of many authors who consider music appreciation as an experience more holistic than analytic, was the culmination of the development of the AME approach – Expressive Music Appreciation. This approach, tested by the researcher in her doctoral study, aims to consider the listener, especially children, in the different ways in which they are able to listen and respond to music. The AME approach focuses on music appreciation through the use of the bodily, verbal and visual expressions. This approach also recommends the use of a broad and diverse musical repertoire. In this time of profound changes in the universe of Brazilian Basic Education this work aims to demonstrate how the AME approach can be effective in the training of music teachers.
