Sequence of Activities
(Students have previously seen Power Point)
CHECK FOR STUDENT UNDERSTANDING
Students will answer questions about their slide shows as a group, as individuals, in a classroom setting, and in their composition books. They will be assessed through their verbal discourse and their written work.
Previous lessons have focused on analyzing the meaning and symbolism in songs. This project allows students to assign their own meaning. Students who are happy with their final product will be asked to show their slide shows at the Spring Concert on May 24.
Students will create slide shows sans music based on specific thematic content yet to be chosen. After slide show is completed, they will be asked to write the music for the slide show.
