I taught the most dreadful lesson in quite a while today, looking at analysing the set work by Handel. Almost all teacher-led, constant low level disruption and the more able students bored from the lack of pace, etc. There are 20 students in the class and they are very mixed ability. We've had some great lessons leading up to this on the four main themes in the work, harmonising them and cadences. Can anyone give me any tips on engaging students when looking at such a set work in detail/ how do others go about this? Many thanks in advance, much appreciated.
