Reflection: Classroom Setup Band Camp - Section 2: Engage


In order for this lesson to be systematically successful and not just a bung of banging instruments making lots of noise, I carefully choose the setup and deliberately go over the expectations before allowing them to proceed.  In this case, I have spread the instruments out around the room.  You can see from the video, that each instrument is spaced out so that students can work in a "station" like manner.  There is enough space to try the instrument, use the i-pad for further knowledge, and discuss and write with their partner.
