Playing with Possibility:
The Power of Choice in the Music Classroom
At any given moment in the Orff Schulwerk classroom there are multiple directions that good teaching process can take you. With any piece of literature there are any number of concepts and skills that you can teach or practice. With any concept or skill there are any number of pathways to support student learning. How do you manage all of these possibilities?
In the active workshop we not only experience lessons that guarantee success on the daily level, but we elevate our vantage point and look at some of the big ideas. What do you value most in your classroom? Are you using your teaching time in a way that truly reflects your values? Are your choices in learning activities and concepts covered reflective of what you say you value most?
Simultaneously, we will look at diverse ways for growing your students’ capacity to make artful choices in their own creative process.
We may not come up with answers to all the big questions, but we will spend a day courageously swimming in the possibilities and gaining clarity and direction for the future.
Dress comfortably for movement and bring your soprano recorder.
