Star Wars elements booklet and activities

Star Wars elements booklet and activities

This is a GCSE resource that I teach my year 10's. I have created a booklet to work alongside a powerpoint. I have tried to make it as simple to use as possible. I teach my whole SOW with this resource and it usually takes around 8 lessons. I have some rather odd activities that I do (you will see this on the powerpoint) they may not be suitable for some classes. I like to keep the cost low as I only want to have enough money so I can buy other resources.

AFRICAN MUSIC - KEY STAGE 3 - OVER THREE HOURS OF TEACHING & LEARNING SUPPORT AND ACTIVITIES

AFRICAN MUSIC - KEY STAGE 3 - OVER THREE HOURS OF TEACHING & LEARNING SUPPORT AND ACTIVITIES

The resources included in this download reflect the exceptional value for money and quality that you rightly expect when purchasing from Rainy Night Music. African Music is a very popular topic in Key Stage 3 Music. This project focuses on Rhythm and Metre, balancing theoretical elements such as basic note durations, time signatures, and specific features of rhythm and metre with live group performances. The cultural and historical elements of the music are also a focus within the unit, and explicitly so in 2 of the tasks for the benefit of subject-specific Citizenship requirements. The project is divided into 2 'lessons', which fit perfectly into 2 x 100-minute lessons, but also very well into 3 action-packed hour-long lessons... I have personally taught this project in both of these formats. The content works best with most Year 8 groups, but can also work well with good Year 7 groups. The video tutorials take the pressure off you, the teacher, if you need half an hour or so to check homework, etc. Let me teach your students how time signatures work, what triplets are, and how graphic scores work while you mark a few books, if you want! I hope you enjoy these resources as much as my students do. Please review if you do buy. Many thanks.
