Improvising a Consequent Phrase
This assessment has two parts. For Part 1, in between repetitions of the song “High, High Hill,” students will improvise a consequent phrase in response to an antecedent phrase that was performed by the teacher. For Part 2, they will reflect on their performances by circling a smiley face that reflects how well they felt that they did on their improvisation performance. The performance of each student will be video–recorded for teacher scoring later using the Teacher Scoring Rubric found on page 8 of this Teacher Booklet. For this assessment, no Student Booklet is needed.
This assessment may be easier to implement if someone other than the teacher supervises the video recording of the performances. If this is not possible, the teacher should be careful to ensure that students who are performing stay in the video frame during the recording process.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
