This listening map for the first movement of Vivaldi's "Spring", created by Lisa Greene, is a graphic organizer that helps teach the rondo form. Students listen to the main theme and then follow the map as they hear the theme return after each new section. Short descriptions of springtime events help them visualize what Vivaldi was trying to depict, and space is provided for student illustrations. (The sketch for Section A should be repeated, just as the melody is!) Making a transparency of the map will help the teacher guide students through the musical selection, which is approximately 3 1/2 minutes long and is widely available in the public domain.
