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.

This is a game that I have long played in my mind when I'm in a gallery. Look at an artwork, decide what you think it is about. Look at the title. Does it change the meaning of the artwork? Sometimes it doesn't but when it does it can be a real eureka moment!
This worksheet asks students to do just that! Some exhibitions lend themselves more to this than others and it is worth doing a recce before you use this resource.
