This assessment is for students who have had experience and practice with movement, level, tempo, and dynamics. Students will work in small groups to create a short movement piece that has a beginning, middle, and end. The prompt for composition will be a teacher-selected piece of instrumental music from a movie soundtrack. Students will use a planning guide to develop a storyline for the movement piece, inspired by the quality of the music selection. The teacher will score students’ work with the provided rubric, evaluating whether the group created a piece with a clear beginning, middle, and end while effectively using a variety of movements, levels, tempos, and dynamics to tell the story.
