Substitute Music Lessons
We know what its like. You’re called away for an important event or conference, or maybe you’re just unable to come to work due to illness or family reasons. It happens to everyone!
The thing is….. if you can leave some simple, easy to use lesson plans behind, then you know that your students will still have a great lesson, and your substitute will be able to handle it without a problem.
But how can you do this without a lot of hard work?
Its for this reason that we came up with this simple download: seven lessons that you can choose from to suit just about any class.
This is how it works:
Students watch a short Youtube video (around 10 minutes). These videos have been carefully chosen to provide quality information, and not be boring! We’ve even provided a page which has the video embedded, so that the students can’t get distracted by any innapropriate comments that might be on a Youtube video.
They go through a comprehension activity, based on the content of the video, filling in blanks in the worksheet. There is a power-point included with all the answers embedded, so that the substitute does not need to know anything about the subject matter. The powerpoint is also provided as a webpage, so that prevents any difficulty sharing the file with the substitute teacher.
Students do worksheet activities to complete the lesson. These range from simple matching games and word searches, through to discussion questions for the older students.
There is even ideas for extension activities if the students finish too quickly.
The lessons suit a variety of age levels, from elementary through to Junior High school, and they are on a range of topics, so within these seven lessons you’re sure to find something that will suit most classes.
Here is a rundown of the lesson topics you can choose from:
“A Brief History of the Piano”
“How Music Saved Venezuela’s Children”
“History of the Beatles”
“The Life and Career of Michael Jackson”
“Downloaded – A Short Documentary on Media Piracy”
“Gotye – The Making of Eyes Wide Open"
