or anything else that disrupts the rehearsal process will follow the following steps:
● Step 1: Verbal Warning
● Step 2: Students will lose points on their daily 5 points
● Step 3: If students lose all 5 points they will be removed from class and contact will be
made home.

Grading Breakdown
● Rehearsal Points: Students will receive a 5 point grade for being punctual, respectful,
engaged, and prepared. Students will lose points if they are late, on their phone, unkind
to their classmates or materials, or do not have their materials for the day.

● Reflection Points: Throughout the semester students will reflect on their own progress,
the progress of the ensemble as well as listen to music and share their opinions in
writing. Students will be expected to write in full sentences and use their best writing
skills.

● Performance Points: As of right now there will be no live performances in the


2020-2021 school year.

● Written Points: Students will complete worksheets/assignments in music theory, rhythm


notation, and other projects throughout the semester. These assignments will
accompany the music literature that is being worked on in class.

● Students will be required to bring their instrument and materials at home when they are
remote learning.

Mr. Harr’s Virtual Classroom


This year Mr. Harr will be using Google Classroom and Google Slides to post teaching videos
and our goals for each week. This will be necessary for students learning remotely, but will also
be a useful tool for students that desire instruction outside of what they are learning in class.
