NEW GCSE: AOS2 Broadway Musicals (AQA)

NEW GCSE: AOS2 Broadway Musicals (AQA)

(0)
I wrote this powerpoint to fit with the new AQA's new GCSE specification. Broadway Musicals 1950s-1990s fits within Area of Study 2. My teaching focus here is key musical features and how the music sounds, not key facts about the sub genres. Listening examples have been hyperlinked within the green stars. A listening task was used at the end of the lesson so that students could apply their new knowledge.The key aspect which I have highlighted to students is listening which is why I link students to the department spotify which has a wide range of playlists at their disposal.

This powerpoint is designed for ‘AOS3: The Film Instustry’ from the eduqas exam board. The powerpoint features all you need for this topic, audio examples embedded into the powerpoint (see headphone icons), other audio links will take you to YouTube. There are several google quizzes throughout the PP. I have added a document with the edit links to the files so you will need to copy these to your areas and add the new links into the powerpoint. This lasts for two lessons, it was created to work as a distance learning unit however, can be easily adapted for classroom use.

Film Music (Lesson Seven)

This scheme of work is currently being taught to year 9 students although I have taught it with year 8 at a different school. The scheme of work aims to explore different genres of music including different musical devices before the main project which involves the sound being removed from four different clips (of each genre) and asking students in groups to come up with the music to accompany it. The seventh lesson is focused on assessment and evaluation. The embedded videos link to my private YouTube channel and are not able to be found without the link.
