Presenting a fun game with S.M.A.R.T. goals* for motivating your chorus!
This dynamic educational game will introduce your students to the essentials of good vocal and choral technique while developing the unity that every choir of excellence must employ. Based upon the tenet that a choir is made up of individuals much like the stones in a rock wall where not every stone is the same shape, size, color or texture (see slide 2 of the preview), no individual is asked to give up or change their unique personal characteristics. However, they must all work together to create a seamless, strong "wall" of sound with which to bring joy to the listener's ear.
As play continues from week to week, their knowledge base will expand and effective vocal and choral skills will be reinforced. Please see the Questions and Answers tab for a more detailed explanation of the product.
The Choir-O-Meter folder contains:
•An “Introductory” PowerPoint presentation which:
◦Presents ten major topics of good choral/vocal technique;
◦Delineates the skills of the individual topic heading of each slide;
◦Offers motivational principles;
◦Can be easily projected for group viewing;
◦In addition, using the slide view of the PowerPoint file, you can mix and match the
different slides to meet the needs of your individual teaching situation
and/or time allowances. You can even add your own favorites!
•An Excel “Tally Sheet” with auto-calculation formulae to track individual class’ progress and identify strengths and weaknesses which can help guide instruction for future lessons.
•A separate “Bookmarks Templates” folder from which you can print physical bookmarks upon which is a summary of the individual slide topics. These can be used as “exit tickets” to help remind students of the skills taught in that day’s lesson. Using your printer's settings, bookmarks can be printed in black and white as well as color.
•A READ ME file which explains the origins of the game and how I use it.
*S.M.A.R.T goals are commonly defined as being specific (S), measurable (M), achievable (A), results-focused (R), and time-bound (T).
