Comparing and Contrasting Two Pieces of Music
Students will listen to two different versions of a song or piece of music and then compare and contrast the two (provide similarities and differences). The examples provided here can be used, or teachers may wish to substitute other examples they prefer. This option is similar to what is done in the ELA curriculum with different versions of the same story.
For this assessment, you should use at least two of examples of a “hunt”-style story or song. This could also be done using the story and song of the gingerbread man compared with John Lithgow’s “Marsupial Sue Presents the Runaway Pancake.”
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
