Teaching multi-level band classes in middle school (6-8)
My district has been transitioning to a middle school band model that integrates all students in grades 6-8 and multiple skill levels (absolute beg. through intermediate) in the same classes. I've been teaching band in this manner for the past 5 years, but I often wonder I could be more successful with my students. It has proved to be quite challenging at times.
Are there others in this situation? I would love to get feedback and ideas!
