Edexcel GCSE Beethoven powerpoint SOW

Edexcel GCSE Beethoven powerpoint SOW

This is a powerpoint and music resources to teach pretty much the whole of the Beethoven set work for GCSE music with Edexcel. It covers melody, rhythm, instrumentation, harmony, tonality and structure. I haven't mentioned texture because I use that as a talking point throughout the lessons. A word document with assessment questions that link closely to the exam has been added. Resources are on the powerpoint for ease and should be printed from the powerpoint for ease. A few activities are suggested on the powerpoint too. This has not yet been tried and tested yet but I hope it will be helpful.

Glastonbury Headliners Wordsearch Music Band Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Glastonbury Headliners Wordsearch Music Band Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Glastonbury Headliners'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
