Blended Learning Application - Assignment


Now that you have learned a bit about implementing blended learning into your classroom, it's time to put it into action.

In "Module 2 : Best Practice in Technology" you learned many elements and resources to assist you in blending in your classroom.

Create a lesson that integrates blended learning into your classroom that you will use within the next week or two.

Use the lesson with your students and gather feedback from them regarding the lesson and their thoughts on how it went.

Post your lesson here for feedback from your peers. Include the feedback your students gave you as well as what you would change next time you use this lesson.

Review a lesson or two and share your thoughts with your peers using the Comments feature in each submission.

In the Concept field, please place your full name.


Once you have completed this activity, you will be ready to move on to the next: "Using Your new practice" (Discussion Forum)

Since I am not currently teaching, I am not able to completely fulfill this portion of the lesson. However, I will share a part of a lesson plan that I am currently brainstorming.

Lesson Title:  Analyzing the use of motives in composition.

    

Grade Level: Eight Grade

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES The students will understand the purpose of using motives; have the necessary skills to find them in compositions, and be able to demonstrate their learning through short compositions.

 

LESSON OVERVIEW We will analyze famous examples in which composers used motive development to construct the framework of their works.

 

TIME FRAME Three sessions, 1:20 minutes each. (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)

 

TEACHER RESOURCES Computer-Tablet (With Internet connection), projector, full compositional scores, notation software.

STUDENT RESOURCES Computer-Tablet (With Internet connection), notation software,
full compositional scores.

TEACHER PREPARATION Update personal teaching website to list all of the links that students will need to access to work on this assignment. Break down score-motives onto a notation software for students to analyze with more ease and make them available on personal website.

TEACHER DIRECTIONS FOR LESSON

Day 1: After concluding the regular rehearsal for upcoming performances, the students will listen to themes by Wagner, Schumann, and Beethoven and aurally analyze reoccurring motives. Their first intro homework assignment will require them to search for a piece of music or song that they believe uses reoccurring motives. They will write a paragraph on Google Docs describing their discovery.

Day 2: After concluding the regular rehearsal for upcoming performances,we will discuss some of the student findings on the previous assignment and observe a few examples in class.  The next portion of the class will consist of analyzing Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony’s introduction on the projector as a group.  For their homework assignment, the students will be given a list of links which provide selected scores which will demonstrate developmental motive. On a Google doc, they will write a paragraph or two about their findings. They will attach a screen capture of two separate areas in a piece where they see developmental motives being used into their document.  The screen capture will also be posted to my personal teaching website where each student will comment on similarities between each others choses example.

Day 3:  After concluding the regular rehearsal for upcoming performances, we will discuss and analyze several other composers’ works in which developmental motives are prominent.  These examples may be based off student findings from the previous homework assignments. Having previously worked on basic compositional techniques, the students will already have the necessary software and skill to produce short compositional exercises.  Their next homework assignment will involve the students creating a twelve to sixteen measure piece in which they use a short motive to form the melody.  They will upload a PDF file of their work on my personal teaching website.  Their final writing assignment will consist of three or four paragraphs about the process in which they used to create the melody.

Assessment:  Assessment will be given to each Google doc sent before the next class period on developmental motives.  The grade will be based on participation since the assignments are strictly opinion and subject to individual choice.

My attached lesson is an example of a blended lesson that could be implemented in my current placement classroom. This class incorporates limited technology, so this blended lesson plan focuses on introducing students to two resources (quizlet and prezi) and having them gain experience in prezi.

Enriching Our Community Lesson Plan

Objective: After lesson students will be able have a plan for changing something in the community, with a strong and reasonable argument. Students will also understand the principles behind creating a law or making a change in a community.

Standards:

- 6.1.4 Address a public issue by suggesting alternative solutions or courses of action, evaluating the consequences of each, and proposing an action to address the issue or resolve the problem.

- 6.1.5 Make a persuasive, reasoned argument on a public issue and support using evidence(e.g., historical and contemporary examples), constitutional principles, and fundamental values of American constitutional democracy; explain the stance or position.

Procedures:

  1. Prior to this lesson, students will have learning about constitutional principles and fundamental values of American constitutional democracy.
  2. Split students into groups of 4
  3. After browsing the city website and thinking about their community students should decide as a group what they would like to change or add in the community.
  4. Students are to submit these ideas onto Edmodo.  Other groups are responsible for typing a response to each group so that a discussion is started about each proposal.
  5. Following the online discussion, groups will create a Prezi or Google Doc to formally propose the change with a course of action, alternative solutions, consequences, and a way to resolve the problem using evidence from online resources about the community or newspapers.  Students will be required to look up zoning issues and local laws to be sure the idea is possible.
  6. The groups to present their proposal after practicing as a group
  7. Following the proposals students will go back into Edmodo and take a pole for the proposal should be passed.
