Students will start class by taking out their bell work and planners and begin filling each
out appropriately. The bell work will be on questions that the students have been learning
in their previous lessons.
o Time allotted: 5 minutes

Body of the Lesson

Students will engage in the Parts of the Staff lesson.
o Plan for 100% engagement: I will use proximity around the classroom and
throughout the lesson to make sure I see every student participating.
o Modifications/Accommodations: If there, are students with accommodation needs
that are called on, I will ask additional guided questions to help the student find
the answer.
o Formative Assessment: I will walk around the room checking each students notes
to make sure they are writing down what is on the power point slides.
o Instructional Strategy (type of learning or teacher role occurring): Guided
questions, modeling, accessing prior knowledge.
o Time allotted: 15-20 minutes

Students will participate in a sight reading exercise that implements musical ideas that we
have worked on throughout the unit.
o Plan for 100% engagement: As I point to the notes on the white board, I will
continue to check on the students to make sure all of them are using hand signs
and speaking/singing solfege.

o Modifications/Accommodations: If students are not successful with certain
excerpts of the exercise, I will ask a student who excels in the class to clap the
rhythm, or sing with solfege.
o Formative Assessment: I will know if all students are participating by watching
them participate in the sight-reading and will hear if they perform the exercise
o Instructional Strategy (type of learning or teacher role occurring): Peer teaching,
repetitive practice, modeling, solfege.
o Time allotted: 10 minutes

Students will engage in warm ups and rehearsal of repertoire.

o Plan for 100% engagement: I will be consistently checking for posture as well as
participation from students. If students are not singing, I will positively ask all
students to engage in the rehearsal setting because we need every member of the
team to make the best sound.
o Modifications/Accommodations: If students are having trouble following along, I
will ask a stronger student singer to help them keep up by pointing to where they
are in the music. If many students are struggling with a part in the music, I will
model the singing and sing with each section to make sure they understand the
part completely.
o Formative Assessment: I will be consistently checking for posture, proper
breathing, proper supported sound and knowledge of each piece.
o Instructional Strategy (type of learning or teacher role occurring): Modeling,
singing, solfege, guided questions.
o Time allotted: 20 minutes

Concluding Activity
Students will turn to a partner and explain to them the six parts of the staff that they have
learned today.
o Time allotted: 5 minutes

If time allows, students will sing through all the music they know from beginning to end
with accompaniment.
