Product Description

This Beginnings of Rock Music Unit of Work has been created with the Middle School and General Music student in mind. It has a focus on the Elements of Music Listening Analysis, Paragraph Writing and the use of the Super Six Strategies.

Included in this resource are:

• TWO versions – one printable and one classroom/display

• How Rock was Born, Music of Africa, Features of African Music, Untuned Percussion, Tuned Percussion, Wind and String Instruments, History of Jazz Music, Jazz Instruments, Features of Jazz Music

• Spelling words, definition match it cards, vocabulary activity

This unit of work is a great way to get your students understanding and appreciating where the music they listen to has its origins. Your students will enjoy the variety of music embedded in the unit – both listening to it and having the opportunity to perform it on the instruments available to them in your classroom.

When I teach this unit, I use the African Ensemble Assignment as a fun performing and composition assessment. Be sure to check it out in my store!

Happy Teaching
