American Professor in Residency at SIS
Posted 03/19/2014 07:54AM

Dr. Erik Johnson, Colorado State University Professor of Music Education, is visiting the Bayside campus this week to teach peer-teaching strategies and collaborative learning techniques to the music classes and SIS teachers. All week students are learning new ideas and techniques to improve their musicianship by using collaborative learning skills with Dr. Johnson. On Monday, IB music students received feedback on their performances in the IB recital dress rehearsal followed by a lesson on stage presence. Sixth grade students participated in the first part of a multi-lesson learning experience called “Can I hear it Before I play it?” On Thursday afternoon, Dr. Johnson will share strategies with SIS teachers to increase the use of collaborative learning models in a variety of different classrooms. Predicated on the idea that the seeds of creativity are nurtured through the process of collaborative inquiry, the session will be aimed at understanding how various didactic and collaborative classroom participant structures impact the depth and flexibility of student understanding. Additionally, Dr. Johnson will be working with the 7th and 8th grade band and orchestra students on their understanding of harmony and composition, and with the high school band on the music for their spring concert.
