Re: Practice Charts
It definitely is a waste of time and a headache. I still use them, but as extra credit. That way the ones who want to practice can get the benefit. I add points to their playing test grade for being turned in.
100+ minutes = 10 points
90-99 = 9 points
80-89 = 8 points
70-79 = 7 poins
60-69 = 6 points
59 and below = 5 points
I add the points to the lowest test grade first.
Another question for the Band Directors out in the ethereal.
How many of you still do practice charts? Like where the beginners need to practice an hour or so outside of school each week? Are they effective or no?
Also, if your answer is yes, would it be worth instituting practice charts this year or would that be more of a next year thing?
