I'm moving up to DP Music in August and am excited about the new challenge. I've talked to great DP Music teachers who have given me fantastic advice and I've read and re-read the DP Music guide. Here, I'm going to be posting my rubrics, note-taking, etc. It's my first year teaching DP, so I know I'll look back on this page and I'll laugh and think, "Newbie," but even still, I hope I help people who can learn by watching my struggles and triumphs. Some things are pretty obvious. For example, I know the two prescribed pieces are "An American in Paris" and "Petite Messe Sollenelle," so I'll be posting my research into those two pieces. I'll also be posting rubrics I've made, so if anyone can offer constructive criticism, I'd really love to have it.
DP Music - Summative Assessment
DP Music Guide: Summarised
My Subject Coordinator told me to start with the exam and to work my way backwards. In the file (to the left), I've summarised everything important in the guide into two pages, and then have put a bullet list of the exam structure.
Here is an A3 printable poster showing the kids how they'll be assessed at the end of grade 12.
