Objectives: Students will be able to treat equipment and others respectfully. Students will be able to follow and repeat rhythms taught. Students will be able to attempt each exercise activity. Cues: Ready and listening position Safety: Students will sit out if found hitting other people with sticks The teacher will review from class to class which songs have the most appropriate rhythm for drumming. The beat must be very apparent and consistent in order for students to drum properly. This lesson was created by collaborating and sharing instructional resources with the music department. After finding that students are enthusiastic about drumming, and all ability levels are able to participate (some with the assistance of an aid) a rhythmic drumming unit was created for a fun fitness version of the music unit. In order for it to be successful, however, the teacher must review with colleagues on proper phrasing and explanation in order to not confuse classes, as well as review and revise these terms and applications when found necessary.
