Are you having a teacher observation coming up? Do you need a strong unit lesson plan?
I have used this unit lesson plan format and it has always received highest ratings. I wanted to share it with other music educators.
This is a sample unit lesson plan that you can use in your orchestra, band or chorus teacher observations. It follows the backward planning ideas. It incorporates a longer chunk in teaching where the culminating activity is a final performance.
The unit incorporates everything that you would do in instrumental classes:
• Ensemble skills
• Listening to different sections and different parts
• Different interpretations in the music
It is designed to make the administrative part of your teaching EASY while focusing on building your music groups.
The unit lesson plan has:
• Essential questions
• Assessment methods
• Differentiation in the music classroom
• Culminating activity is a concert and the lesson plan is centered around preparing for a concert (which is what al of us do)
Everything that your administrator will require and you need for a successful teacher observation!
The best part? I have left it as Word document. This way you can leave it as is, or cut and paste depending on your needs.
