KS3 Making Music - Scheme of Work

(0)
“Making Music is about students developing their own skills, broadening their understanding of the music that is around them and how they themselves can create music in a practical and fun way”. This resource package is a Key Stage 3 Music scheme of work that aims to provide the teacher with a solid base to work from. Each module aims to provide appropriate levels of progression and flexibility, with clear, pertinent and achievable tasks that can be adapted to any situation or student need. There are 9 booklets included in this package, with over 200 worksheets, consisting of: Year 7 - Module 1 - Rhythmic Patterns Year 7 - Module 2 - Melody in Music Year 7 - Module 3 - 12-Bar Blues Year 8 - Module 4 - Indian Music Year 8 - Module 5 - Skills in Music Year 8 - Module 6 - Background Music Year 9 - Module 7 - Song Writing Year 7-9 - Listen & Identify 1 Year 7-9 - Listen & Identify 2 Homework tasks, listening tasks with supporting YouTube playlists, and student self-assessment are built into each module of work. These help to develop, support and consolidate student knowledge and understanding of the concepts covered in each module, as well as develop student confidence and ability to express themselves, their views, and opinions through verbal and non-verbal forms of communication. A teacher overview supporting document ‘KS3 Music Module Outlines_Y7-9’ provides a clear breakdown of the content and objectives of each module, the assessment criteria and learning outcomes for a ‘Life After Levels’ assessment model, a breakdown of the YouTube playlists with recommended listening material and weblinks to useful resources and sites.
Year 7 Baseline Evaluation & Extended Writing Task

Year 7 Baseline Evaluation & Extended Writing Task

(1)
This baseline evaluation is a series of questions about musical elements where students have to listen to short clips of music and identify rhythms, pitch, melody, instruments, and changes in music such as dynamics and tempo as well as their knowledge of key music terminology. The question paper is laid out clearly in a progressive way and is supported with a PowerPoint presentation that gives examples of how to answer questions. The results obtained from doing a baseline evaluation provide invaluable data on students knowledge and understanding. Use of this data can be correlated between other assessments undertaken throughout the Key Stage 3 course, as well as whole school data, instrumental lesson data, and help inform your planning for students learning. I have also set this paper as part of a Year 10 introduction to the GCSE course exam to see how pupils have progressed and how much of their knowledge and understanding has been consolidated. This pack contains a question paper in Word and PDF format, an answer paper in PDF format, a PowerPoint Presentation where the audio clips can be played, and also a ZIP file containing all audio clips clearly labelled in WAV format. To set-up make sure that you copy the PowerPoint presentation to the same folder that you have extracted the audio files. I have also included an extended writing task that can either be set as homework or as an extension task during your lessons. This gives students the opportunity to talk about their music. For this task I have given students a week to research and then write up a draft. Spelling and grammar can then be checked before they write up their neat version. Students who produce a high standard of work are rewarded through whole school reward policy.
