  1. 1. Thursday ASSURE 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. Thursday Objective High school students, grades 9-12, will know the plot of Puccini’s opera Tosca, and critically asses the music in relation to the characters. They will also create representation of characters and settings which are true to the composer’s intention. They will learn to do these things througha digital storytelling on YouTube,digital imaging with Photoshop, Avatars on SecondLife.com, and Facebook. 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.)
  2. 2. Facebook Digital Imaging (Photoshop) Secondlife.com YouTube U Utilize Media and Materials On Thursday, students will be shown a YouTube video which relates the plot of Puccini’s opera Tosca. They will take notes on the settings and characters. Their assignment will be to produce an image of one of the settings in Tosca using Photoshop. To accompany this they will create a SecondLife.com Avatar in the style of one of the characters. Students will be required to post their edited setting photo and SecondLife.com character to the class Facebook so their classmates can see. They will submit a narrative of their editing processes to me through Dropbox. R Require Learner Participation Thursday’s assignments will be self-directed and creative. These projects will require research, individual contemplation, and critical thinking. As they are somewhat artistic assignments they will naturally be the product of individual effort. If they are not I will be able to tell and grades will be docked. E Evaluate and Revise I will assess students individually, through their daily assignments, to keep track of their personal progress.I will assess these assignments for originality and staying true to the composer’s concept. 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.
