Keeping a group of children aged seven engaged is key, whilst the teacher is discussing and using speech to explain about the instruments my contribution would best be given by demonstrating in turn how the instruments are correctly to be played and demonstrate the sound the instrument makes. Perhaps moving around the class spending a little time with each child as they pass around the instruments to have their own turn. Helping them where needed to make different sounds and to play them correctly.
2. What might your role be in organising, using and maintaining the learning resources, material and equipment for this percussion lesson?
Before class I would lay out all the instruments and check to make sure they were in working order and that everything needed to play them was available for it to be played correctly i.e drumsticks etc. I would make sure I was able to demonstrate each instrument correctly. At the end of each class I would make sure that the instruments were cleaned and put away neatly so they would be ready for next time.
3. Describe how you act in class in order to be an effective role model for the standards of behaviour expected in pupils?
During Class I would hope to contribute in a way that the children would find interesting and keep their attention to the subject and what the teacher was saying.. Keeping things calm, to avoid any misuse or unnecessary noise of the instruments and speaking politely with the children so they felt they can ask for help or any questions they may have. I would move around the class speaking with the pupils in a respectful polite manner, I believe them seeing good behaviour is a great way to learn how to act. I would encourage any good behaviour demonstrated as reinforcement of this will hopefully encourage more....
