A scheme of work I put together with supporting materials.\n\nThere are a range of features to teach discretely, such as Raga and Tala and activities to support this learning. The scheme culminates in an assessment in which students should apply their knowledge of features to arrange a successful Indian Piece of Music.\n\nMight need to add links to sound clips for true or false activity - I found this worked well as it structured and informed the students' listening rather than leaving them to dig for responses.\n\nHope you enjoy and have success using these materials with your students.

List of art techniques for students to try within their work.
When I used this I got the students to select which techniques they wanted to try and which ones they could self study. I then planned skills workshops with smaller groups based on their choices.
This scheme of work is designed to get students thinking about mixed media rather than just presenting photographs. It links with the AO2- refinement of ideas and encourages students to explore mixed media methods of refining ideas.
When I taught this, I incorporated is as a mini project within a larger scheme to develop a wider range of experimentation. The other part of the scheme focused on computer editing and manipulation so the two worked well together to produce a varied body of experiments.
