Reply To: Higher order questions for music
Use Bloom’s Taxonomy as a guide. Center your questions around key words from the chart. HOT questions are along the lines of “What do you think this piece is about?” what part of the message would you change? what part of the piece would you change / add to and why? why do you think the melody goes in that direction?
I have my students do written listening assignments with HOT questions. That’s really big now.
