Reply To: General music scheduling proposal
I teach in a PreK-8 school and totally agree with your idea to have a break-off 7th grade General Music class. Kids who don’t want to be in choir are just wearing you and others down and taking your time. In GM they will be able to explore other genres, do projects and frankly more things which may be interesting to them. I’ve tried to get 7th graders to sing – hahaha – so I feel your pain. …. I’ve frankly never heard of study hall for middle school. Do your kids get technology or art? Middle Schoolers in my building go between gym, band, art and technology. You’re on the right track, though.
