Singing Partner Songs and an Ostinato
Students will sing partner songs that are approximately eight measures long and will sing an ostinato in groups. Students should have learned both of the partner songs and the ostinato in previous lessons and had the opportunity to sing the songs and ostinato in previous lessons. Though examples of sample song pairs and an ostinato are provided in this Booklet, the teacher can choose which pieces are to be used.
After the students have performed, they will reflect on the quality of their performances using a reflection checklist.
This assessment will be video recorded by the teacher for scoring purposes. This assessment may be easier to administer if someone other than the teacher supervises the video recording. If this is not possible the teacher should be careful to ensure that the 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.
