Would you consider sharing what questions you ask for the "How It's Made" and "Marsalis on Music" videos? Thank you! |
My beginners watch three days of videos ("How It's Made" videos over instruments, "Marsalis on Music", and performance videos). They answer questions on all of them. My 7th and 8th grade band have student run sectionals. I give them a detailed list of things to practice (more than they can finish each day). They go in to practice rooms (we have four), the ensemble room, the hallway, the back locker area, and corners of the band hall. The subs just wonder around an make sure everyone is behaving themselves. The past four years we have done this, I've only had one section who had issues. I am actually surprised how much they fix on their own.
While you're gone to TMEA, what do you leave for the kids to do?
For me, a study hall is out of the question, and so is having them play.
Thanks in advance!
