Nontraditional Music Instruction: Environmental Percussion

My district is starting Nontraditional Instruction starting Monday due to the rapid spread of COVID-19. Teachers will be asked to report to school everyday, but students will remain home. I will be sharing any materials I create for assignments for free and will be available to answer any questions you also have.

Here is the basics of how this process will work. We surveyed families to find out who has internet access and devices at home. Families without internet or devices will be given paper assignments. Those papers will be shuttled by bus drivers, who will also be delivering breakfasts and lunches to families who qualified for free and reduced lunch. Teachers will report to work as usual. We will be working on new assignments and making daily contact with families offering assistance and checking in to see what work has been completed. Special area teachers will not have to contact every family. We will be assisting homeroom teachers that have the most students.

My special area team has agreed that each day, all grade levels will be given an assignment in only one special. It will be easier for families with multiple children of varying ages to work together on the same type of assignment.

Here is a sample of the first assignment I am sending home. I am sharing this via Google and it will force you to make a copy. You will be free to edit without to suit your needs without changing the original. I will share more assignments and information as this rolls out and we are learning more about this process.

  1. When trying to download, it took me to a new browser and offered me to make a copy but didn't do anything> Did I miss a step?

  4. I believe that it automatically saves to your Google drive. I then tapped the three dots in upper right if window and opened it in Google slides,then Ichose "move" and put it in the folder I wanted it in.

  5. I removed the end of the link (everything after "copy") and it worked. This is the link I ended up with https://docs.google.com/presentation/u/1/d/1WZHI_-fSMgRRk9w6QEAn59p9i6Nx-3Tu/copy
