Band Grades, Level Up Challenge and Reminders
Level Up Challenge
Students move at their own pace to pass off lines from the book.
The lines get progressively more difficult.
It gives a challenge for students that are able to move faster than the pace of the class. It motivates students to move ahead and practice more.
Students who pass level one will get their picture hung up in the band hall. Each level passed the student will receive a sticker by their picture to indicate another level passed.
How to submit?
On Google Classroom there is a classwork assignment named "Level Up Challenge". There is no due date listed so students can move at their own pace.
Level Up Challenge assignments have been passed out to students. You can find an additional copy at our website: http://parkwoodhillwood.band/parkwood-hill-beginning-band
