Three Related Plans
For my Art of Teaching Children Music class we had to put together three related plans. There was a lot of freedom for what we could do with this project, the only stipulations were that they had to be related in some way, they all had to be for the same grade level, and we could use the lesson we had for our final teaching in class for one of them if we wished. I did choose to reuse that lesson, mainly because while working on that lesson I had lots of other ideas about other sections that could be added to it to create a larger performance activity, and so that is what I chose to do. These three lessons are all intended to go together and come together to make one large activity that would be used as a performance for the students’ families. This becomes very clear in the third lesson because part of that lesson it to put it all together.
