Formative Each student will have 5 cards that correspond with each of the Genres, and a
worksheet with their handwritten notes. After giving a musical example of one of the genres
students will be asked to hold up the matching card. If a student doesn't give the correct
answer they will be able to look at their worksheet to help guide them. Students will be able
to lean new content and connect it to what they already know/familiar with.

Summative 10 minutes before class is over students will all line up and, as music is playing,
they will be asked to sort desctriptions/ definitions/ examples in the right colum. If a student
doesn't get the right answer the class will help them figure out what the answer is through
what they learned.

Integrative At the end of class students will be asked to write down two songs that connect
to one of the genres they know.
