Planning for an Entire Year of General Music

(Without Losing Your Mind)

with LeslieAnne Bird

Do you have to post an entire year of music lessons for all of your students? Do you want to get ahead with your planning to lighten the load during the school year? In this webinar we will create a plan to craft a year's worth of lessons, without losing your mind in the process.

Several States will require music educators to post an entire year's worth of lesson plans in June. While this is not an ideal situation, for some it just has to be done. In this webinar LeslieAnne will show you how to craft an entire year's worth of lessons plans for your general music students in an efficient and practical way. We will break down our planning into chunks and set guidelines and deadlines to keep us on track. This webinar is also useful for folks who don't need to post lessons for the year, but want to get a handle on long range planning.

Participants will take away:
- A Long Range Planning Guide
- Knowledge and Skill to Craft a Long Range Plan
- Detailed Notes for Reference

Participants should bring:
- Their Schedule
- State or National Standards
- Curriculum Guide
- Pacing Chart or Scope & Sequence if applicable
- Paper and pencilYou will be given access the workshop recording and downloadable materials from the presentation.

A certificate of completion can be provided to participants who request one for professional development hours.
