Today I had the chance to meet with other music teachers from the Elk Island Catholic School district and we had a full and interesting day regarding best practices. We shared games, assessment strategies, songs, and resources. I came away from the day feeling good about my approach so far, but learned some tips that I’ll be implementing quite soon.
One of the teachers has 5 sub plans written for the year – I may try to do something similar.
Main takeaway from today (which I keep hearing): when students are engaged, there are rarely any discipline issues.
And kids love having fun in music class. (I knew this already)
