Differentiated resources which aid students in developing the harmony, rhythm, melody and texture of an original idea. Each set of resources was originally used over 3 lessons with a sixth form class but could also be used with GCSE students.
Students must firstly define development methods for each of harmony, rhythm, melody and texture (definitions provided). They must then identify how this looks by using musical examples.
The gold task then asks students to apply at least one method to their own composition.
All worksheets are in word so they can be further adapted in order to differentiate for your students.
An overall list of development methods is also provided to be used either as a quick test or a summary.
Students read the Grade 9 GCSE model answer on the theme of love and trace how the 9 step method has been used to write about the extract and the play as a whole.

I have made it so you can print them separately or as part of a 4 page booklet.
