Crescendo Workshop

Prepare for 2020

A two hour intensive workshop to help set you up for 2020


This workshop will address the following areas: 


The How, What and When of Summative Assessment

In this segment we discuss strategies, devising authentic yet realistic tasks and creating Marking Guides.


How to embed differentiation in the Music Classroom

We get very specific looking at what differentiation in the Music Classroom looks like, and how we can best document our practice and improve student outcomes.


Templates, Examples and Maximising the use of Workbooks

Just as it states, not only will you receive templates and examples, you will look at potential use of workbooks and what they should contain.
