Product Description
Introduce your students to an awesome culturally diverse music tradition using this detailed, step by step lesson plan. This lesson focuses on West African Rhythmic Timelines (especially how they are conceptualized in Benin specifically). Students will have opportunities to learn about duple and triple subdivisions as they compose rhythmic timelines through both iconic and standard notation. Ultimately, students perform their compositions with their classmates. The student composition worksheet is included, and I have provided lots of contextual information about music in West Africa (Benin specifically). This is advertised as "a lesson" - but really, the activities provided will keep your students excited and engaged for several days!
