  1. 1. MondayASSURE A Analyze the learners I will be teaching public high school students grades 9-12, in the setting of a music appreciation class. The class shows a homogenous demographic of middle class, locally born students. There is an equal mix of boys and girls. Most express an audio or visual based learning style, and have responded well to research and reflection based assignments. S State Objectives Exploring The student, with precision and selfdirection, critically analyzes music. The student insightfully describes and evaluates music and music performances. Relating The student explains, evaluates and makes inferences about the relationships between music, global cultures, the other arts and disciplines. The student’s observations demonstrate critical thinking and are wellreasoned and insightful. Appraisal The Student shows mastery of the context and content of musical works, by active listening, critical reviewing, and relating their assessment of a piece of music. Monday Objective High school students, grades 9-12, will contemplate and comment on the state of arts appreciation classes, explore opera history, and create and use a Dropbox account. They will learn to do these things through using a Blog, a Web quest, and a Tutorial. The students will accomplish this with 100% accuracy in one week. S Select Methods Media and Materials (The actual resources are presented in full form on the Wiki.) ZunalWebquest Dropbox (A Web 2.0 application)
  2. 2. A class Blog (through Google) U Utilize Media and Materials This multi-part lesson will begin with an in class introduction. I will open the class blog and read the entry on the state of art appreciation classes. Then I will invite a small-group class discussion on the subject. The groups will present their thoughts. The second in class lesson will be on how to open and use a Dropbox account. Here I will use the tutorial as a visual reference point. I will now introduce the unit subject, opera. Homework will be a ZunalWebquest on opera history. I will encourage questions and comments be delivered through Dropbox. R Require Learner Participation The class discussion will be the collaborative element of student participation on Monday. The Webquest will be self-directed, but its completion will require substantial individual commitment in the form of research and critical thinking. E Evaluate and Revise I will assess students individually, through their daily assignments, to keep track of their personal progress. The rubric for grading the assignment is on Zunal. If I see lacking work or an insufficient grasp of a concept I will allow revision. I will take note of the entire class’s progress both daily and finally on Friday. The last assessment will show whether the unit was an overall success or failure.
