Eduqas GCSE Music Revision: 10 for 10 Minutes

(0)
Revision questions for Eduqas GCSE Music. This resource has been designed for revision during registration It is literally 10 questions to be completed in 10 minutes. It is also useful for form tutors and wider school staff members to see what GCSE music involves by placing a revision activity outside of our normal teaching area. The revision areas cover 10 questions on each of the following: Melody Articulation Dynamics Tempo Structure Harmony Instruments Rhythm Sonority Eine Kleine Nachtmusik Since You Been Gone AOS1 : Musical Forms and Devices AOS2: Music for Ensemble AOS3: Music for Film AOS4: Popular Music All questions on separate sheets so that you can either print as a booklet or individually. All answers at the end of the document. I have printed this as a booklet and am encouraging students to complete one per registration session so the build up is gradual. We will be marking in the following class session and using this a the starter activity. This is simply meant to focus a range of key terms and understanding. Providing the student with a really useful revision guide.

EDUQAS GCSE Music Student Composition Log 2018 -2019.

This is a Powerpoint document that I’m using with my GCSE Music class this year. It’s designed to allow students to keep a digital record of their composition progress in line with the three monitoring checks required by Eduqas. I wanted to have a document that would allow students to update easily and store within the local shared area. It’s uploaded here as a Powerpoint document so that you can edit it yourself to suit your learner’s needs. The document covers both compositions and references the current briefs set by Eduqas. Once all compositions are completed this information can be copied across to the official paperwork. Hopefully you will find it useful!

This can be used as a stand alone student support booklet to ensure thorough coverage and wider understanding for AOS1 Eduqas, GCSE Music.

Learner monitoring behaviour report.

This is a new style monitoring report designed for learners to reflect on their behaviour and progress in lessons. It is uploaded as a powerpoint document so that you can easily adapt it for your own school and learners. It is absolutely designed for learners to make the biggest contribution to - and reflect on why they are being monitored. I have used this report sparingly and after a detailed conversation with learners who have responded well. On the back is clear information from the Department for Education - clearly identifying that learners have the right to learn and the sanctions available to schools. You can included your own behaviour for learning agreement underneath. This is working well with my learners - I would welcome your feedback.

This is a substantial powerpoint with fully embedded sounds. There are 23 slides covering basic and extended chords on C. Each slide shows a clear two octave piano keyboard - showing all note names. As the slides progress the piano keyboard shows the notes present in each chord. There are two speaker buttons - when pressed one will play your named chord harmonically and the other will play the chord melodically. The following chords are included: C major triad C Sus 2 C Sus 4 C5 C6 C7 C9 C flat9 C add 9 C11 C13 C major 7 C minor C minor 6 C minor 7 C minor maj 7th C minor 9 C diminished triad C diminished 7th C minor 7 flat 5 / half diminished C augmented triad This is not designed to be presented in all one session but rather a reference point. It very clearly shows the notes in the chord and you can choose to hear how they sound. All chords have been embedded. This is uploaded as powerpoint and you can easily arrange the slides in an order that is appropriate for your learners - leaving extended chords towards the end perhaps.
