5,I had so much fun presenting on portfolios in the choral classroom at Wingate University's Ages and Stages conference. Keegan Brittain, their student ACDA chapter president, was kind enough to invite me and be so awesome about organizing the entire event. I LOVE meeting future music educators and getting their feedback on how their school experience is going and what things they have to add/ are excited to bring to the choral classroom world!
I'll update sheets with their ideas of things to add- but for the most part we talked about adding more information in song sheets for students to identify how the text connects with them. This has given me ideas of how to approach the next couple days in my classroom as we wait for MPA music to arrive (in addition to extra sight-singing practice. *wink, wink*)
Here are links to the presentation, handout, song sheets, and annotation check-list!
5,000 points y'all for being so fun.
