Inspired by our intervention teachers, these 5 Active Listening Strategies posters help guide students to make meaning of the sounds they hear, the way the elements of music are put together to convey a purpose, and what to listen for in their own rehearsing. When my students reflect or evaluate the music they hear, I often validate their contribution through these posters. They are becoming real good at making connections, strategizing how to improve their performances, and sharing what they are picturing!
I hope you will post these in your music classroom to encourage purposeful discussions and responses to music! If you download my product, please take the time to comment on the quality of my work. Thank you!
