Welcome! 4th Grade-Sixteenth Note Rhythms-PLC. By: Jennifer Masrud Denae Besel Jeffrey Leiknes Susan Colletti. Smart Goal and Standards being addressed. Smart Goal:
85% of 4th grade students in music class will score 80% or higher on our sixteenth-note rhythm post test by March 20, 2013.
Strand I: Artistic Foundations
Standard 2: Read and notate music using the standard notation such as quarter, half, and eighth notes and rests, the lines and spaces of the treble clef, and time signatures.
Artistic Process: Create or Make
Standard 1: Improvise and compose rhythms, melodies and accompaniments using voice or instruments to express a specific musical idea.
*Compose their own four beat rhythm patterns.
*Play 16th note rhythms on various instruments.
*Perform their compositions for each other.
*Practice the rhythms from the test.
Jeff met our goal but the rest did not meet the goal.
Effect Size: (In an assessment workshop that Denae attended we found out a way to find the effect size between the pre and post test to see if our students increased the learning. We were told that anything above a .4 means that we were effectively teaching the students the concept)
Jennifer's effect size: 2.33 for one class and 1.4 for the other class
Susan's effect size: 1.35
Jeffrey's effect size: 1.19
Denae's effect size: 1.59 for one class and 1.74 for the other class
