Best quality, borderless printing is recommended for the posters if your printer has that capability.
Bulletin Board Posters
The bulletin board posters are purposefully sparse (shown in thumbnail #2) to help students focus on the main points and give them the best chance of remembering them. Included is a composer of the month poster, a dates/origin/era poster, a portrait of the composer, a poster that lists his top movies for which he wrote film scores, and top awards.
The John Williams word search is designed to build reading skills, so it does not include the search words. Students must search for keywords in the John Williams | Hey Kids, Meet the Composer Biography (included) to find the words they feel are important about the composer. The About Resources page of this packet lists the search words.
Meet the Composer Job Application
Students fill this job application out for John Williams, including all the facts they have learned from his biography.
Ask students to identify what they hear in any piece from the movie soundtrack by choosing one crayon or another. Listening glyphs provide a great way to assess the whole class quickly.
Star Wars Rap
Make your next music classroom lesson a galactic adventure! This music composition lesson and worksheet give students their first opportunity to write music like Star Wars film composer, John Williams.
The Star Wars Rap composition worksheet provides the first half of the rap:
Darth has a Death Star,
Gotta blow it up.
Gotta save the galaxy,
Who will make him stop?
Students work to complete the rap with Star Wars character's names set to quarter and eighth note rhythms. When their compositions are completed each group performs for the class on non-pitched instruments.
