MIMBAP Structure and Function
The Music Instructional Methods Book Analysis Process (MIMBAP) is intended to help teachers evaluate, vet and integrate children’s books into music instruction in a meaningful way.
MIMPAP consists of four modules that if used reflectively may provide a framework enabling teachers to generate instructional ideas that incorporate children’s books in music instruction.
The instructional ideas generated through MIMPAP are made up of a combination of Module 2, Module 3 and the pedagogical preferences, background, and experience of the teacher.
Processed books within MIMBAP are called records. Each record is placed within a collection. Placement within a collection is dependent upon the number of modules completed for a particular title. Modules are cumulative. For example, books in Collection 2 have completed Modules 1, 2 and 3.
