Preparation: (lead-in/hook/preparatory set/link to prior

knowledge)

T and Ss will form a large drum circle. Teacher will have
students come in and sit next to an instrument. Students will be
given .30-1:00 to play with their instruments. Students will watch
a short clip of Stomp! Kitchen and Basketball and will be asked
to identify characteristics of an ostinato.
Time
Teaching Sequence:

While your watching the video

Students will discuss what they heard and build
characteristics of an ostinato.

Students will be counted off into 4 groups (1234) or (ABCD).
Each group will have a turn in being the ostinato pattern or
changing their pattern.

Within specific group, students will be selected to create
rhythmic pattern in which the rest of the group will come up
with a pattern to layer on top.

Using breakfast menu item cards, students will arrange
various cards to create an ostinato in which other students
may improvise on top of.

After switching the roles and getting a couple of group
ostinatos. T will ask students what they have concluded
about ostinato.

Teacher will then ask students to form into groups and using
rhythms found in breakfast menu items, create and ostinato
pattern. Ss will have to decide how their pattern cards are
broken up amongst the group, and how it will be played.


Culmination: (consolidation of lesson)

What were some challenges in creating this ostinato?
Did you feel that your group was successful in maintaining
your ostinato while others performed the rondo?

Knowing what we know now from our experience, what
are some strategies we can use in the future to help us
create an ostinato?


Notes/Extension:

Students will create a rondo from piece with an ostinato
pattern in their groups.
