InterAct with Music Assessment (Level I)
Get students actively on board and on the right track with InterAct! InterAct with Assessment is a series of active music making assessments for the interactive whiteboard in 3 levels: Level 1 (Pre K-1), Level II (1-3) and Level III (3-5). Each level is an extensive stand-alone collection of 30 sequential assessments for rhythm, pitch/melody, expressive elements (dynamics, tempo, legato, staccato, etc.), timbre, texture, form, and/or harmony. Each interactive assessment will involve students through movement, instrument playing, listening, creating, composing, and reading/writing their compositions using graphic or traditional notations. These activities will also promote 21st Century Skills of critical reasoning, creativity, communication and collaboration. There are helpful 'teacher talk' pull-out instructions, often with suggestions on how to use the same interactive page for a variety of activities.
