Create Your Own Ending to a Song
Students will create rhythmic and melodic variations for the song “I’ve Got a Dog” by creating new words. Students should have learned the song in a prior class period.
During this assessment, each student will create his or her own new ending phrase. Students will adjust or manipulate the words and/or melody to fit inside the musical phrase based on the beats available.
Students also will reflect verbally on the quality of their performances immediately upon completion. The performance and reflection of each student will be video–recorded and later scored using the Teacher Scoring Rubric included.
