How to write a blog post

  1. 1. Music Homework 2011<br />
  2. 2. Why?<br />Blogs are fun! They can be used as reflection pieces.<br />You can read other people’s blogs – check the music page on the ultranet.<br />Useful to demonstrate level of understanding of what we covered in class.<br />Makes up part of your grade – so remember to do it!<br />
  3. 3. Ask the questions!<br />What<br />Who<br />Why<br />When<br />Where<br />How<br />
  4. 4. Example of Blog post<br />In class today, we talked about note rhythm. Starting with the Music Pyramid, we explored how each note value is derived and how everything correlates to each other. We then had a brief look at time signatures. How interesting! I never knew that the bottom number of the time signature refers back to the music pyramid.<br />For the last part of the class, we covered rhythm, combining what we had learnt from time signatures and the music pyramid. We tapped and clapped our way through 3 different sets of rhythm and I found that it was very hard to keep counting while tapping at the same time.<br />I found rhythm work to be most interesting. Hopefully we do more of it next week!<br />
  5. 5. Why?<br />Why do we have to learn this?<br />Why does something work?<br />Why did I find this interesting / boring?<br />What other WHY questions can you think of?<br />
  6. 6. How?<br />How did we learn this?<br />How am I going to apply this to what I already know?<br />How does this relate to me?<br />How is this relevant to what I already know?<br />What other HOW questions can you think of?<br />
  7. 7. Keep notes during class<br />The music pyramid makes things so much clearer!<br />Creating our own music notation was a breeze.<br />I was able to explore how notations are formed while making my own notation.<br />Jane made a really awesome comment on the music pyramid. She said: “ (quote)”. Interesting point!<br />
  8. 8. Ultranet – Look at it!<br />List of everybody’s blogs up on the ultranet.<br />Handouts, powerpoints, resources, all up on the ultranet!<br />
  9. 9. Comments<br />I will comment on each and every one of your blogs. Go into your blogs to approve the comments!<br />You are encouraged to comment on each other’s blogs as well.<br />
