Music Poetry Project (part 2)

Total views: 1424

Second part-video examples to be added to the original lesson...

Students choose teams of 3-6 students. The teams then choose a poem (from teacher selected samples). They illustrate the poem, narrate the poem and add sound effects (‘beats,’ vocal effects, singing etc.). When they are finished with illustrations and sound effects, the illustrations are taped together and videotaped (by students) while the poem is being narrated and sound effects are added. After each group is finished video-taping their project we have a “movie day” (popcorn supplied by the teacher) and we watch all the completed projects.

There are alternative lessons included for those students who like to work alone, or don’t work well in a group setting.

Sorry. First posting. This was supposed to be posted as MUSIC, not Reading and Language Arts. Also, this is the second part to the lesson. The main content of the lesson says part 1 in the title. The video files made the lesson to large to load at once so these are just to be added to the original.

Again, sorry. : (
