I’m looking for advice on how to change how I taught recorder karate last year. Here is what I did with 4th grade :
I would split the class into 2 different groups to help with noise level , one group would do theory work and one group did recorders , then we would switch halfway through. This allowed 15-20 minutes per group. Then once a student was ready to be tested for a belt , I had them sign up on the board and listen to them. Here was the issues I ran into : students would rush and be competitive to sign their name on the board, or students that were signed up were bored waiting for me to come listen to them, I was busy listening to students for their belt that I wasn’t available to help kids in recorder or theory work, some kids signed up and then class ended and I couldn’t get to them . How do you use recorders I’d recorder karate ?
