My school is in a 2 year phase of exploring and implementing tons of Differentiated Instruction. I’ve been brainstorming ways to use those tools in my music classroom but I’m scared of the rising noise level as I start breaking up our large group into 2 or 3 smaller groups musiking different things at the same time. Do you have any ideas or experience with somehow creating sound partitions to cut back on some of the noise so the groups can hear themselves????
You wouldn’t really want kids sectioned off because you wouldn’t be able to monitor all students at once. Plus even if you were able to put up, for example, a carpeted bulletin board to absorb sound, it may not even be enough to make a difference = sound would go over the partition and be heard by others. If you have a large room, put groups as far away from e/o as possible and ask them to play softly, gather in a circle. If you have a smaller room have groups take turns practicing; others do an assignment / something else. Just my thoughts.
