I have revisited this task here from 21 months ago this morning. I needed a task for the Year 8s to do in their numeracy sessions on Thursday mornings with our Young Leaders and have altered the 'sheets' from last time to be 1024 * 768 pixel-sized wallpapers. This will reduce photocopying costs, and I have added a 'Band Practice' section for students who struggle with their literacy to go for first.
The resources are here:
Each one is to be completed to a 'timer' that will be a popular rock song. I am yet to decide on which, otherwise I'd share!
If each section is assigned one point (1 point for doing 'Band Practice', 1 for question 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), there are 34 points available.
Each student begins as a 'Rock Fan'. For this they achieve nothing, but it means that every student has a starting point.
After scoring 5 points, they'll be awarded the status of 'Rock Roadie'. After the 5 weeks, they'll be awarded a laminated AAA pass (much like a staff badge might be done) if they do not progress beyond this point:
After scoring 20 points, they'll be awarded the status of 'Rock Star', and will receive a commemorative black 7" record with their name on it!
After scoring 25 points, they'll be awarded the status of 'Rock Legend', and will receive a commemorative silver 7" record with their name on it:
After scoring 29 points, they'll be awarded the status of 'Rock God', and will receive a commemorative gold 7" record with their name on it...
The main concerns with this the last time I blogged this was a lack of basic practice. I hope I've gone some way to achieving this with the 'Band Practice' section. Please share any thoughts that you might have...
