Song-by-rote Teaching Requirements
It is not necessary to turn in a lesson plan in advance of this lesson. It is your responsibility, however, to get approval for the song you intend to teach one week prior to the lesson.
Teach the song in the most efficient manner possible. It is wise to time your teach before presentation to ensure this time frame. Some activities take less or more time than you anticipate
Follow a clear line to accomplish your objective (simplest to more complex)
Be prepared and organized. Eliminate lag time.
Choose a song to teach to the class. You may choose a song from the song list, one from an elementary music book in 112A, or from another source. Choose one that will not be familiar to most students.

Teach the song to your classmates by rote: begin with short phrases in a modeling procedure. Continue in cumulative fashion until the 'students' have learned the song
