In Jazz Concert on Campus

Singing star Ella Fitzgerald, who
will appear with Norman Grantz'
famed "Jazz at the Philharmpnic"
Wednesday, Oct. 13, at Hill Audi-
torium, has been acclaimed the
best in her field by jazz critics and
fans here and abroad.
Other vocalists have come and
gone, but the extraordinary Miss
Fitzgerald still reigns as one of the
most respected and widely imi-
tated women singers of our time.
Miss Fitzgerald's fans enthusi-
astically greeted her arrival at Syd-
ney Airport, Australia, just a few
months ago on her first visit "down
under." There, as in Stockholm,
Paris, 'Rome, Tokyo and in almost
every great city in the world, her
performance of jazz classics, such
as "Lady Be Good" or "Flyin'
Home," was received with wild ap-
plause, while her renditions of sen-
timental ballads, such as "Some-
one To Watch Over Me," hushed
the audience.
Notable Year
This year has been a notable one
for Ella. She was chosen number
one female vocalistin two annual
national polls. In May, on the oc-
casion of her nineteenth show busi-
ness anniversary celebrated at New
York's Basin Street Club, she was
deluged with awards from music
publications the world over.
The honors ranged from Swe-
den's "Orchestra Journal" and Ice4
land's "Jazz Bladid" to India's
"Blue Rhythm." She also received
a gold plaque commemorating the
sale of her 22-millionth record.
Critics generally concede that
Miss Fitzgerald is a singer who
can handle just about all types of
music, from ballads to bop. They
maintain she has made a deep and
permanent impression on American
jazz and popular music, both
through her own performances in
person and on records, and throLqgh
the inspiration she has provided
for other vocalists.

Although very successful as a
single performer in clubs and the-
atres the world over, Ella consid-
ers her yearly tours with JATP
as a high point in her career. She
especially enjoys the working re-
lationship with some of the out-
standing individual musicians in
the jazz kingdom.
In the 1954 edition of JATP head-
ing this way, the musicians includ-
ed are such "greats" as pianist
Oscar Peterson, trumpeters Dizzy
Gillespie and Roy Eldridge, drum-
mers Buddy Rich and Louis Bell-


son, clarinetist Buddy De Franco,'
tenormen Flip Phillips and Ben
Webster, bassist Ray Brown, trom-
bonist Bill Harris and guitarist
Herb Ellis.
Sponsored by the Men's Glee
Club, two performances of the
JATP will be presented at 7:15
and 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13, in
Ann Arbor. Tickets are available
in the Administration Building.

Education School Provides
Practice in Student Teaching

Currently there are 98 students
engaged in practice teaching at thea
elementary level and 80 at the sec-
ondary level, under the School of
Practice teaching plays an im-
portant part in the course of study
for those students who plan to re-
ceive their teaching certificate.
In practice teaching, the pros-
pective teacher is brought into con-
tact with actual classroom situa-
tions. In such surroundings the stu-
dent has an opportunity to apply
the knowledge and techniques
which he or she has learned in
various method courses in the
School of Education.
Practical Experience
Prospective teachers find that
this practical experience with chil-
dren is a stimulating challenge.
According to those students work-
ing in the lower grades, the concen-
tration span of younger children is
very short. A prospective music
teacher says that she must have
something new planned for each
ten minutes of a half hour music
lesson, in order to keep the stu-
dents interested.

Another practice teacher working
with fifth grade students was
stumped recently when a pupil
asked for a detailed explanation of
what causes tides. Making use of
her educational psychology, her so-
lution to the dilemma was*"Let's
look it up."
Three Levels
The elementary program includ-
es teaching at three levels: pre-
primary, which is nursery school
and kindergarten; primary, which
includes grades one through three;
and upper elementary, which is
grades four through six.
Elementarly teaching is done in'
three types of schools, the labor-
atory school of the UniversiVy El-
ementary School, the public schools
of Ann Arbor and Pittsfield School.
Those ,students in secondary edu-
cation do their practice teaching
at the University High School, the
high schools of Ann Arbor, Saline,
Dexter and Willow Run, and Tap-
pan and Slosson Junior High
Students may select the schools,
grades and subjects which they
wish to teach.
The student receives a grade .for
his practice teaching on the evalu-
ation of the supervising teacher
and on the case and group studies
which he or she is assigned.
