ASO Composer Project Sheet
DOWNLOAD AND PRINT
Students are receiving this sheet in class this week (week of October 20th). Students only need to download/print here if they have lost their sheet.
To make navigation easier I created a tab at the top of this blog called ASO Composer Project Resources that has everything you need—the list of composers to choose from, project sheet download, tips, a ton of resources and websites to support kids in researching for the ASO Composer Projects—all on one tab.
Items to note:
- · During the year students should spend 30-40 minutes weekly on Music work (for projects or for studying)
- · The ASO Composer Project consists of four Steps. The Steps don't have to be fully completed each week, and students may choose to start with Step 1 or Step 2, but I will check everyone's sheets each week to make sure kids are working and making progress.
- Students will turn in their ASO Composer Project sheet AND their Project (poster, essay, poem, video, prezi...etc. see Step 3 on the project sheet for some options) on or before their due date.
- Third Graders' projects will be due during the week of December 8th on their Music day
- Fourth and Fifth graders may CHOOSE their due dates (by November 7th):
- · Students who wish to work with a partner must bring a note from parents. EACH partner must complete his/her own Project Sheet, and the sheets should NOT contain the same 5 Fascinating Facts or exact wording as their partner.
- · Please remember the point of the project is for each child to learn interesting facts about a composer and to practice listening intently to music. I want students to highlight excellent facts while using their academic skills and creativity while having some fun, but please keep it simple!
- · A final note: Please encourage your child to read through their work to be sure they have paraphrased well, and that the writing sounds like something they would say. If they cannot read their work out loud fluently they should probably rephrase to make things simpler. Even better, get a friend to read it to and let the friend give feedback! How to Paraphrase
