Performing a Steady Beat Accompaniment on Instruments
This assessment has two parts. First, students will perform micro beats and/or macro beats on instruments as the rest of the class sings a song. Then they will reflect on their performances. Their performances will be video-recorded for scoring at a later time.
Kindergarten students will perform macro beats on a Taos drum. First-grade students will perform macro beats on a Taos drum and micro beats on an alto xylophone. Second-grade students will perform macro beats on a bass xylophone and micro beats on an alto xylophone.
Following each performance, students will reflect using a “thumbs up,” “thumbs sideways,” or “thumbs down’ gesture, which also will be video-recorded for later evaluation.
