In Music class, KRE students are expected to:
* consistently follow all directions.
* consistently demonstrate respectful behavior and listening skills.
* consistently demonstrate appropriate use of all materials and equipment.
* consistently demonstrate, through performance and activities, an understanding of all skills and TEKS.
Conduct in Music:
Special Areas teachers make conduct marks in a folder which goes with their homeroom class.
Their teacher then transfers those conduct marks into the student's agenda or home folder to
inform parents of any issues for that day. When a student is misbehaving, I give a warning on the
first infraction, then fill out a Student Incident Report on the second infraction. This will automatically bring the child's daily music grade to an S or N, depending on the severity/amount of learning time
lost. Students may not make up grades which were lowered due to behavior problems.
3rd – 4th Recorder Grades:
It is VERY important for students to participate well in class and practice their recorders at home in order to be successful. There are weekly progress checks and two tests per 9 weeks on the recorder. For that reason, 20% of all 3rd and 4th graders' 9 weeks Report Card grade reflects his/her progress
on reading music and performing on the recorder.
Grading guidelines for KRE Music:
All students are expected to consistently demonstrate proficiency towards improving upon or mastery
of their music education grade level TEKS.
E = Excellent: (90-100)
Your child shows consistent proficiency in mastery of (or improving upon) his/her grade level's music education TEKS. These students participate fully, put forth their best effort with a good attitude and their behavior or conduct does not interfere with their ability to participate or
perform safely. They try their best and bring necessary materials to class for participation.
S = Satisfactory: (80-89)
Your child shows frequent proficiency in mastery of (or improving upon) his/her grade level's
music education TEKS. These students participate at a satisfactory level with few or no behavior problems. They try all or most of the activities presented to them with a good attitude. Their behavior or conduct periodically interferes with their ability (or others' ability) to perform and or to perform safely. They sometimes forget to bring necessary materials to class for participation.
N = Needs Improvement: (70-79)
Your child shows occasional proficiency in mastery of (or improving upon) his/her grade level's music education TEKS. These students sometimes participate but with a less than desirable attitude or at an unsatisfactory level. They receive many verbal reminders for not following directions or breaking school rules. Their behavior or conduct occasionally affects their participation, the ability for others to participate, and the safety of others. They may do just
enough to get by and often forget to bring necessary materials to class for participation.
U = Unsatisfactory: (69 or less) Your child shows little or no proficiency in mastery of (or improving upon) his/her grade level's music education TEKS. These students sometimes refuse to participate, or do so with a less than desirable attitude. They perform at an
unsatisfactory level and may receive several daily verbal reminders for not following instructions. Their behavior affects their ability (and others' ability) to participate, and compromises the safety
of others. They show little concern for improvement, often forget to bring necessary materials for class, or frequently break school rules.
