BTEC First Award for Music - Unit 1 Exam Questions

BTEC First Award for Music - Unit 1 Exam Questions

Past exam papers are so useful – what better source of practice questions? But, other than a straight mock exam, the questions aren’t in the most useful format. This resource has all of the section A questions from all available past papers (7 papers, 84 questions) arranged by topic (as PowerPoint and PDF) so you can easily target certain areas (perhaps after a PLC check). They can be done very quickly as starters or plenaries, perhaps using student whiteboards. The three sections of the paper (including section A again) have then been divided up so that a quick lesson activity can be be completed rather than a whole paper. To help with planning, the first page of each PDF lists the topics involved in each part. The mark scheme is also provided, so everything can be printed off in one run. It’s so useful to give students the mark schemes! The questions have deliberately been left in their original font and format, this may look odd with the grids, but it’s important for students to get used to what the papers look like. Please note - there are no new questions here, they can all be had for free from Pearson, the resource has a small cost due to the amount of reorganisation that's gone on. The PowerPoint was created on a Mac, which can cause some formatting issues on PCs that are easily fixed. A PDF version is provided to aid printing and formatting.

BTEC First Award in Music - Unit 1 Personal Learning Checklists (PLC) and Analysis Tool

BTEC First Award in Music - Unit 1 Personal Learning Checklists (PLC) and Analysis Tool

Personal Learning Checklists for unit 1 of the BTEC First Award in Music. PLCs provide an excellent focus for students to assess their own knowledge prior to exams so that they can target their own revision. They also provide an excellent opportunity for reflection after mock exams. The specification for unit 1 has been broken down into student-friendly statements and each has a simple RAG (red, amber, green) tick box next to it for students to evaluate their knowledge. The language of the statements is based around the BTEC terminology of describe, explain and analyse. Students should complete all or part of the PLC on a regular basis, there is also a student analysis document (with a Guns 'n' Roses theme - we are studying the music industry after all!) to enable them to analyse their strengths and weaknesses and so target their future work and revision. The resources are supplied in two formats - PowerPoint and PDF. The PowerPoint file was created on a Mac, which may create some formatting issues for PC users. The PowerPoint is shared to enable to teachers to tweak the content, but please always remember the source. There are some specialised fonts employed, details of these are in the PowerPoint notes. The PDF version is ready for printing.

NCFE Music Technology - Unit 4

NCFE Music Technology - Unit 4

This is my PowerPoint that walks learners through the fourth unit of the NCFE Music Technology course. I felt it helped having a count up on the lessons so the students knew how much time they had left.
