Ready to start a Composer/Musician of the Month but don't have a plan ready? Look no further! This set on Gustav Holst is perfect for your composer of the month unit. It provides lesson plans to teach music history and music listening for the composer of orchestra song, "The Planets."
This set includes:
• Lesson Plans covering 7 mini-lessons to presented at the beginning or end of your lesson as a "Composer of the Month" activity.
• Bulletin Board printables including information about the composer, definitions appropriate to the particular composer (i.e. Fanfare, Concerto, Composer, Conductor, Musician, etc.).
• A small write up to include on your class website for students to investigate further.
• YouTube and SafeShare links to engaging videos highlighting the composer's works.
This set will get you with a Lesson Plan that is ready to print and yet can still be modified to suite your needs. The composer units focus on a different composer or musician each month and the lesson takes about 5-10 minutes of the lesson time. I do the lesson at the very beginning of class and focus on listening, discussing music with appropriate terminology, and connecting music to the "real world." This lesson comes with 8 mini-lessons and links to the YouTube videos used in the lesson.
In addition, you will also receive printouts for your bulletin boards that has blank pages to be modified to suite your needs. I display the current composer's information in my room and then move his or her information to the hallway as a running list for students. Pictures of this can be found Pictures of this can be found on my blog.
Each lesson plan includes standards that are checked off for the GPS (Georgia Performance Standards). I have also included alternative National Music Standards Checklists and National Core Arts Standards Checklists.
