OTHER EVIDENCE:
Through what other evidence ( e.g quizzes, tests, academic
prompts, observations, homework, journals) will students
demonstrate achievement of the desired results?
Rock of ages will prove the effort made across the year in order to
create a professional and high quality performance
The students need to keep their high level on their instruments in
order to be in accordance to the requirements of the repertoire, so
they are expected to practice by their own as much as possible.
How will students reflect upon and self- assess their learning?
The results will be evidenced on rehearsals with the other part of the
team and with the final performance of rock of ages.
