Baroque Music

Baroque Music

(4)
A useful start for Year 8 (and even Year 7) pupils into Baroque music. The task is a comprehension with the document - students answer questions based on picking out information from within the comprehension. Pupils then summarise information from the questions to come up with 5 most important points about the Baroque era. This is a document I'd re-worded from Wikipedia, adding and omitting bits where I saw fit. There are all kinds of things that can be added on such as more about instrument inventions, more composers, pieces of music etc. Any feedback would be great, thanks!
