Lesson Plan for 5th Grade General Music by Gwen Waldman TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION FOR MEANINGFUL CLASSROOM USE A Standards-Based Approach Daily Lesson GAME Plan Template Lesson Title: S.O.S. - Save Our Related Lessons: Blogging-What is the Symphony (Orchestra) Problem? and What Can Change?, Presenting Our Grade Level: 5th Grade Unit: The Demise of Classical Music GOALS National Standards for Music Education: Content Standard 6: Listening to, analyzing, and describing music Content Standard 7: Evaluating music and music performance Content Standard 8: Understanding relationships between music and the others arts, and disciplines outside the arts Content Standard 9: Understanding music in relation to history and culture ISTE NETS-S Creativity and innovation Critical thinking, problem-solving, & √ Communication and collaboration decision-making √ Research and information fluency √ Digital citizenship Technology operations and concepts Instructional objective(s): Students will describe and evaluate the music that symphony orchestras perform. Students will identify the causes of orchestral demise. ACTION Before-class preparation: I will gather online articles about symphony orchestras that have gone out of business or are experiencing financial trouble, gather online resources of symphony orchestra programming, bookmark online resources with Diigo so that students can access the relevant sites. I will print the Internet articles and gather relevant books, encyclopedias, and compact discs. During class Time Instructional Materials & Resources Activities 2 minutes Watch http://www.khon2.com/news/local/story/Budget- introductory Woes-Silence-Honolulu- video: Budget Symphony/l854mHwqK0-J5FxDWeYHhg.cspx Woes Silence the Honolulu Symphony 8 minutes Begin KWHL SMART Board and tools (what we Know, Want to learn, How we will learn, and what we have Learned) Chart 20 minutes In pairs, MacBooks (one for every 2 students), Internet students read articles bookmarked on Diigo, print version of about the failing Colorado Symphony programming brochure, orchestras, learn musical selections found on Karadar.com about orchestral programming and listen to musical selections. Students take Paper and pencil, Word, and/or Inspiration notes. 10 minutes As a whole Student notes, SMART Board and tools group, we (Students will receive a copy of our updated update our KWHL chart.) KWHL chart Notes: Student groupings, environmental modifications needed, etc. Students will self select their pairings for this lesson. I believe the students will work more effectively and efficiently if they are working with a peer they are comfortable with. For my students who struggle with reading, I will set up the Voice Over application on our MacBooks to help them access and understand the Internet articles. I will also add music sites that are designed for younger readers. Because my music classes are limited to 40 minutes, this lesson may need two class periods for students to thoroughly read the materials and have adequate time to listen to several musical selections and learn about them. MONITOR Ongoing assessment(s): Students will have the rubrics for collaborative work, blog postings (for the 2nd lesson), and end of unit presentation. For this lesson, students will be informally assessed on their collaborative work and contribution to the KWHL Chart at the end of class. Accommodations and extensions: Students who have been to symphony performances, as well as, students who have performed in a recital or concert can share their experiences. If students have performed any of the pieces they find in the orchestral programming resources, they could plan to perform the piece for the class at the end of the unit. In addition to using the Voice Over application and providing music sites at varied reading levels, I will modify all activities to meet students’ Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs). Backup plan: In case we have difficulty with our Internet connection or computers, I will have printed copies of the Internet articles that I have bookmarked for my students. Books, encyclopedias, symphony brochures, and compact discs (CDs) will be available for students to use in class. EVALUATE AND EXTEND Lesson reflections and notes: The final project of this unit (a digital story) will be shared with families on students’ digital portfolios. Innovative ideas for helping symphony orchestras be more financially secure will be shared with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra Programming and Marketing Teams.
