GCSE AQA - AoS 4 - Aaron Copland - "Saturday Night Waltz" and "Hoedown" from Rodeo

GCSE AQA - AoS 4 - Aaron Copland - "Saturday Night Waltz" and "Hoedown" from Rodeo

Hi I have used these sheets to help pupils analyse the set works in the AQA Music syllabus for Western classical Music since 1910. I saw the idea being used in an English lesson where pupils were analysing poetry. They would read the poem and identify key devices and write them on a sheet similar to this. They would then use the sheet to construct extended answers I have used this technique with my own pupils when analysing the music. It helps scaffold the areas they need to analyse (melody, harmony, rhythm etc) I would print the blank sheet on A3 and give this to pupils. They would then use scores, internet and other classmates to fill it in with interesting points. I have included a word document so that they can be edited as I do tend to add questions and other points for differentiation and help guide pupils. We would then discuss the music as a class and fill in any gaps that are missing (Using the teacher sheet) I would then allow pupils to use the sheets to construct extended answers which is a requirement in the exam. I would use questions such as “Describe the difference between theme 1 and theme 2 in Hoedown” “Explain how Copland used waltz influences in Saturday Night Waltz” etc. Pupils can then develop their own questions for others and can be used as a revision aid. All resources have been created with the AQA teaching resources from the AQA website While I have attempted to add as much information as possible, this is not a definitive guide to the syllabus and should be treated as an activity to aid teaching. You may use them as you please. Most information is taken from the AQA teachers guide Thanks Mike
