In our rush for Zoom and synchronous teaching, we have forgotten the power of feedback. You can do feedback via Zoom but in a video lesson it really comes into its own. I hope to show in the following lesson how you can use children’s prior work to engage learning and move children on to the next step. I don’t think I could do this very well via Zoom with huge amounts of children in a class.
In this lesson I start off with a recap of last weeks lesson and then I play compositions that the children have written and sent in via Class Dojo. I then use that learning to scaffold compositions using three notes and then using a five note scale with lots of worked examples. The objective is to create five note compositions and score them using bunny pictures. I hope you like the lesson and it might inspire you to make your own lessons using feedback from the children as a starting point.
