I introduced books to my KS3 lessons in January at the request of SLT, I didn't really bother with books and prefer to produce a couple of worksheets to use through the topic which have been kept neatly in folders along with assessment feedback sheets. Does anyone else use books much in their music lessons? I tend to do evaluations and have sheets stuck in, which is now creating more hassle because I'm having to spend time getting these loose sheets stuck in. This brings me onto another point - the books have benefitted me in that they've opened my eyes to how poor the quality of pupil's reponse is when listening to music. I'm using listening grids and level critieria to help pupils with their written work and get more quality answers out of them but I need some more ideas. I always walk away from work scrutiny feeling a bit flat now. I keep my marking as up to date as I can, I'm getting pupils to peer assess and doing what the school need, but I'm worried about the poor quality of their written work (which is mad seeing as this is supposed to be practical based.) Any advice welcome.
