Makes the teaching of composition easy for you, and fun for your students
Teaching composition should be as simple as teaching painting or drawing for a young class. So why isn’t it? We need to put in place ideas and methods that make the teaching of composition simple so that students are empowered to create new ideas on their own.
Completely covers the composition component of the Common Core (USA) and similar curricula around the world.
If you’re familiar with the Common core, you’ll know that standards 1, 2 and 3 relate to composition, requiring students to “generate and conceptualise artistic work” and then develop and present that work. We’ve explored the detailed standards for each grade, and explored how best to meet the standards in a way that works for students.
A ‘flipped classroom’ model enables you to focus on what you do best
If you’re teaching classroom music, you’ve got so much to do already to prepare lessons, organise instruments for your children, organise choirs and bands and prepare them for performances! The ‘flipped classroom’ nature of this program means that you can add these lessons to your teaching with very little preparation.
Seven online training sessions, which you can watch live if you wish, or catch up on whenever it is convenient to you.
This will be presented in seven weekly training sessions – one focussing on each grade level from Kindergarten through to Grade six. Each week we will present the student videos and explain all the methodology behind them, and talk through how the activity relates to the curriculum.
Seventy prepared lesson plans for Grades K-6 with classroom videos and assignment pages
Each week will focus on one grade level, and you’ll get a program of ten lessons for the grade, which are all uniquely created for the age group. Each lesson consists of a short classroom video, which you can choose to show the students or not, and any interactive digital resources or worksheets that are needed to complete the activity. There is also a printed lesson plan which outlines the activity for the day.
