Animal warm up: 3 animals–3 energies. Instruct students to think of one of Laman’s 3 energies. Then tell them to think of an animal they feel represents that energy. Have them become that animal. Have them do this for all 3 energies. Remind them to interact with one another in their animal form. Tell them to pick one and turn that energy into human physicalizations and gestures. Step 1 – Isolations: 3 energies hands: 3 energies facial expressions. Have students face each other in two parallel lines. The person across is their partner. Have students embody each of the 3 energies isolating one body part. For example, your eyes, then nose, then hands, etc. The partner is to watch how the other partner does. Step 2 – Go over the new assignment with the introduction sheet of paper. Step 3 – Students will listen to 4 pieces. After listening they will vote on one piece to create their class music video. Step 4- After choosing the song, students will sign up for team-member roles. (See handout at end.) Step 5- Students will then listen to the entire song and create a music map of the song. Students will listen especially for what their roles will require of them.
Final Assessment for Lesson 3:
Student participation and involvement in selection process.
Begin brainstorming ideas for the music video, in the school space. Something they can reasonably accomplish within the given window of time.
