Product Description
Every semester, I typically have one or two weeks following our final concert left for instruction. This project is one that I have used successfully to engage my students in interactive learning groups. Each small group gathers research about a given composer (Samuel Barber, Benjamin Britten, Arvo Part, Veljo Tormis, or Jakko Mantyjarvi) and presents their findings in a creative format.
The students may come up with their own project idea or use one of the suggestions provided. I have included my rubric and peer assessment form to aid the grading process. The students receive a copy of both the rubric and peer assessment form prior to starting their work. This project can last between 2-5 days depending on the time you wish to designate for it. The presentations typically are spread out between two days.

Prior to Instruction:

1.) Assign each student into one of five groups
2.) Gather any reading materials and laptops/iPads for each group
3.) Slip the 5 instruction sheets and suggested resources into separate manilla
envelopes
4.) Place your envelopes in specific areas about your classroom

During Instruction:

1.) Split students into groups
2.) Instruct the students to move to their designated project stations
3.) Hand out grading rubric and peer assessment form
4.) Move about the room to offer assistance

Post Instruction:
1.) Obtain peer assessment form from each group member
2.) Assign points using the rubric's assessment criteria
