Integrate improvisation and composition into your music classes with these interactive lessons. Each lesson starts with a folk song, chant poem, or musical work to explore rhythmically and melodically through movement, clapping, singing, or instruments; students then improvise as a group and individually, and finally create their own compositions. Rubric-based assessments clarify the goals and results of each lesson. 10 creative plans and reproducibles to project or print.
