I have used this Ensemble Assignment with my Year 8 students for a number of years. The task is given to students to complete the performance and composition section in class, with the writing section completed at home. This has been a very successful assignment with a high completion rate by students with some amazing and creative results! I always record/video the students’ performances and play back later for peer review; the students love that part!!!

Happy Teaching
