This is the next PowerPoint Presentation in the series 'Britain and Europe'. This presentation explores how the European Union works and the different bodies that run the European Union. It also looks at the make-up of the European Parliament and the treaties that have modified the EU into what it is today. This would be a helpful resource for British government and politics and also to help understand the upcoming referendum.
This PowerPoint Presentation is the first in a series about Britain and Europe. It examines the process of Britain's entry into Europe and the hurdles that both the Conservatives and Labour faced in negotiating Britain's terms of entry. This is an ideal presentation for those teaching British Politics or wanting to understand more of the history between Britain and Europe.
Technical exercises in composition, such as the harmonisation of a chorale in the style of J. S. Bach feature as an option in the majority of A Level Music specifications.
This worksheet introduces some of the key stylistic issues in chorale harmonisation, including good spacing of chords, the avoidance of parallel fifths and octaves, and the use of melodic decoration such as passing notes. The worksheet is broken down into five tasks, the first four of which are preceded by useful tutorial sections, that explain the theory behind what is required in the following task. Each of the tasks increase in difficulty, leading to the harmonisation of a complete chorale melody. The worksheet is ideal for use both within the classroom, and as homework, and each of the tasks are self contained so may be used in isolation.
The five tasks are:
– Task 1: The completion of the alto and tenor part of a series of chords, using good spacing and doubling the correct notes;
– Task 2: The complete voicing of a series of specified chords, using the rules of doubling and spacing previously learned in Task 1;
– Task 3: To gain practice in spotting parallel and hidden fifths and octaves in students' own work, by highlighting mistakes in a series of given chorale harmonisations;
– Task 4: To rewrite a the alto, tenor and bass parts of a given harmonisation, to include passing notes and other decoration;
– Task 5: To complete a full harmonisation of a given chorale melody, using all of the techniques learned previously.
Great at the front of the classroom, outside the library or in the school hall for assembly, the iPhone Music Class Display is an excellent way of sharing what music we are listening to!
Once the display is laminated, simply print and tack a photo of the musician or album cover onto the centre of the display. Additionally, you can easily write the artist's or band's name using a whiteboard marker underneath.
Pupils really look forward to seeing new music each week. I have worked with teachers that have used this resource to promote positive behaviour, with certain pupils each week being in charge of selecting the class music!
Any feedback is greatly appreciated and I hope that you enjoy this resource!
