KS3 / KS4 Songwriting / Pop Songs Scheme of Work

KS3 / KS4 Songwriting / Pop Songs Scheme of Work

KS3 / KS4 Songwriting Scheme of Work. The unit is broken down into student ability levels HIGH (HAT), MIDDLE (MAT) and LOW (LAT) to support individual progress through learning. Chord Sheets and an opening presentation for the first lesson. There is also a "Progress Bingo" card for students to monitor their progress as they complete the task. This lesson can work within a number of contexts including a single lesson (although expectations of what they complete should be considered), a scheme of work lasting up to 6 lessons, or as workshop material for an Extra Curricular Day. It would be worth modelling some examples of good pop songs taken from YouTube to demonstrate what students are trying to achieve.

Rewards Chart

Rewards Chart

A chart to monitor behaviours and achievements in class. Place a star in each box as students achieve each goal throughout a set of lessons. This can be left up in the classroom throughout a scheme of work or projected onto the wall during lessons. I found this very useful with younger groups in KS3.

KS3 Film Music Scheme of Work

KS3 Film Music Scheme of Work

KS3 Year 9 Film Music Scheme of Work including 7 lesson plans with resources, film clips, worksheets and homework tasks. This scheme is designed to be used in the music classroom with basic instruments, although it can be easily adapted to use in a computer room with music software if available, which works well. Aimed at year 9 students, although this would work with other year groups if it fits into your annual planning. I have used this for many years with much success as the scheme lends itself to evidence based analysis and review from teacher and pupil including self and peer evaluation, ideal for Ofsted to see a clear progression of learning.
