Student’s Choice: Engaging Students in Task Design ­Make the concert THEIRS 

This session will be co-presented by Jan Gill (RSU 73) and her son Jake Sturtevant (MSAD6).  Both will present examples of strategies that allow students to choose, arrange, and perform songs.  From a 3rd grade class choosing a name for their band and songs to perform on guitar, bass, keys, drums and vocals to a High School Band of 60 students transcribing and arranging Uptown Funk,  this session will present strategies for how to negotiate and empower student choice to promote positive interdependence, in a variety of ensembles and general music settings. 

          Through arranging and performance, students are allowed to be engaged in self designed authentic tasks, as well as self monitoring. They share an experience in cooperative learning which are the essential building blocks of the learning process.

          Students should have a say in the music that they perform, and the act of choosing, arranging, and performing allows for the students creative growth and it ultimately drives motivation in performances.  The session will also allow for participants to share examples of how they have engaged student’s choice in their classes and ensembles.
