Lately, I acquired the next query from a reader:
“Hello Pleasure, Are you able to see doing all your “Music of the World” camp as a web based camp? Thanks!”
–C.M. from New York
Nice query! I haven’t tried it myself, however after pondering it by way of my reply is sure, I do suppose this camp would work very successfully supplied in a web based format. What follows are a number of ideas about how to do that.
The objective of the “Music of the World” camp is to enhance the scholars’ consciousness of and appreciation for cultures which might be totally different from their very own by way of experiencing the music and learning the devices of different nations. College students can have a blast listening to the music from different cultures and studying about every counties’ musical devices, landmarks, and animals.
Every day of camp focuses on a special nation. The curriculum features a set of slides and YouTube playlists for the instructor to make use of every day. In a web based format, the instructor can screenshare the slides and music throughout a Zoom assembly. Simple!
This camp additionally contains a wide range of arts and crafts actions. The important thing to facilitating this in a web based camp format, I feel, can be to present college students with the printed supplies upfront. I counsel making a “goodie bag” that may be dropped off at college students’ houses or a “camp packet” that may despatched by way of the mail. The printouts will be organized by day utilizing paper clips, with every stack labeled utilizing sticky notes (e.g., “Day 1”).
There are 4 craft initiatives included within the camp lesson plan for college students to create their very own musical devices. A few of these supplies will be included within the goodie bag, whereas others will be gathered by the mum or dad/scholar forward of time. I counsel giving mother and father a shortlist of any supplies college students ought to have readily available throughout on-line camp. For instance: pencils, scissors, crayons, glue stick, craft supplies, and a snack for snack break.
One other exercise included within the camp entails a “passport”. I counsel assembling every college students’ passport upfront and together with it within the goodie bag. Ask mother and father for a photograph of every scholar so you may print and glue it contained in the passport. Throughout camp, college students can fill of their private info and glue every day’s visa stamp contained in the booklet.
The one different modification to the camp I’d counsel can be to change the age vary barely from what is usually recommended within the authentic lesson plan. Somewhat than providing the net camp to ages 5-12, I’d counsel ages 6-12 and even 7-12. It’s attainable youthful ages may need a more durable time focusing on-line and finishing a number of the writing and crafting on this camp, so it may be good to regulate the age vary accordingly until you personally know the scholars’ consideration spans.
I hope you may see how the Music of the World camp curriculum can each enjoyable and very efficient in each an in-person and on-line format! Both manner, the camp expertise (as with every curriculum) simply requires a bit of forethought and planning. 🙂
