This lesson is designed to help high school band students learn how to play the correct style that a march demands. I like that this lesson employs a variety of teaching strategies. Through modeling, this lesson creates awareness of appropriate articulation. This lesson also builds the sense of teamwork through viewing videos about articulation and recording and listening to rehearsals and thus teaches students how to be independent learners. 

Technical Remarks:

Lesson plan is in Google Drive.

This Goal Directed Instructional Design Plan was easy to follow. The information provided was specific enough not to loose the user. I like the information on under “a real world performance”, but It would be nice if the learner had links to real world performances or a video under that heading. I also like the information under “a set of essential content” because it allows learner to be aware of what they need to know in order to proceed with the StAIR. 

I believe that the section “a method to help participants learn” could be more open to the individual students as they record their sounds and have their classmates listen to them and provide feedback. This sections also lends it self to multiple methods of face 2 face instruction, like Power Point, Voicesthread, and Wikis. 

Lastly, the socialization aspect of this StAIR seems lacking socialization. The students could play for each other, they could recorded it for others, they could work in groups as they collaborate with each other to improve their individual sound, etc. 

 Overall, I beleive that this is a ok resource that students can use.

Technical Remarks:

The technological needs fits the requirements of the StAIR. It would be nice to see students using other online sound base programs that other students could coment on like soundcloud.

This lesson outlines the basics for teaching band students about the particular style of marches. I appreciate that during the course of the lesson there are a variety of methods used to get the content to the student. The teacher models appropriate articulation, students are viewing videos about articulation, as well as listening to their own performances for proper tone. I think it is so vital that students are able to self-assess their own learning.

Technical Remarks:
