I had misunderstood the complete package offered with this book. I originally thought there were quizzes with the biographies as other books offer, but they were simply the biographies. In order to teach the subject, it would be helpful to have quizzes over the individual composers as well as the periods of music shown at the back.

These reproducible pages are pretty good for handouts about composers from different periods. Assessment pages would make this book a great teaching tool, but sadly, there aren't any. You would have to make your own based on the info for each person. But...it does offer new words for elementary students' vocabulary.

I use these for my middle school students. They have to do a certain number of biographical assignments (for composers/musicians) for me each marking period, and, if they don't have computer access in class or at home, I give them one of these to find the necessary information.
