Today, I did a pre-assessment for my Arts Ed unit on Music that I will be teaching in March-April. I had students fill in the first two columns of a KWL chart (K – what I Know already and W – what I Want to know). When reading them through tonight, I saw a great question in the W column: “How was music invented?”
Then I went, “Hmmm… I actually don’t know!” And here I am, Googling the answer and doing some research at 8:00 p.m. Hopefully, I can share my finding and start a discussion with my students during one of my lessons.
This moment just goes to show you that your students can teach you a lot (and get you thinking from their point of view)! I can’t wait to keep learning with my Grade 3’s!
