Instructional objective(s):

      Students will describe and evaluate the music that symphony orchestras

      Students will identify the causes of orchestral demise.

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.

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.
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.
