A consideration in the formulation of a social science program today is a method to develop correct appreciations, understandings, and attitudes, desirable outcomes of feeling or emotion. Music is an integral part of the culture of any race and is directly related to the social studies. A correlation of music with the social studies is, therefore, not only practical, but also highly desirable in the new synthesis of subject matter. Investigation shows that the value of correlation as an educational technique has been recognized for some time by educators, but that its use has not been established. A few experiments have been fragmentary and confined largely to skilled teachers and progressive educators. In a few instances tentative courses of study have been drawn up at various grade levels, but, in such cases, they are of a pioneer nature. The present study seeks to assemble and organize in cultural areas of human history, music materials of significance for correlation which have already been investigated.
