Dade County Chorus students are off to a great start for the 2015-2016 school year. :-) I was so excited to meet so many middle school parents on Open House night and I look forward to working with you and your students throughout the year.
In each class we have spent the first week reviewing the syllabus, going over classroom procedures, and getting to some singing! Our next hurdle to address will be the Student Learning Objective(SLO) Pre-Test. This test is designed to assess your student's current knowledge and skills of the concepts taught in each particular Chorus class. The pre-test will not count toward the student's grade in Chorus, but a post test at the end of the year does act as a "Final" for the course.
The SLO testing schedule will be as follows:
-August 13 & 14(Thurs & Fri): DMS 6th Grade Chorus & DMS 7th Grade Chorus
-August 14 & 17(Fri & Mon): DMS 8th Grade Chorus
-August 17-20: DCHS Mixed Chorus & DCHS Women's Chorus
I hope that the SLO testing will not take a full two days, but in order to allow enough time for the performance AND written portion, I have allotted two days per class.
I am excited to get our First Days of School paperwork and duties out of the way in order to get into some music learning! If you have any questions about anything we have done or are doing in Chorus, please feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
