What is wrong with the lessons? The largest single factor is simply the TEACHING MODEL itself. Expecting students of any age, and often they are age 6-8 when they begin, to have contact with the "music world" 30-45 minutes, once per week, then go home and plan & carry out practice, flys in the face of everything we know about human behavior, let alone childhood behavior. First, few people can withstand this abject lack of contact--only seeing a teacher for a short time, once per week, then being asked to repeat an assignment daily, verbatim. People generally do not prepare things--anything--without a deadline and having to answer to someone 'higher up.' For children, the scenario is worse, because their brain development is so immature. The parts of their brains that carry out plans are largely ineffective until adolescence, rendering young children nearly incapable to do weekly assignments. Then, there is sheer lack of reinforcement, or knowledge of results, as the week grinds on. Piano is a complex instrument, but regardless of the instrument, only a very few children can negotiate the reality of once-per-week teacher contact. They just cannot do it.
The lesson reviews ratio and then connects it to rate and unit rate. It is a video on a skateboarding bulldog. Dogs rate of speed is calculated as a rate and then unit rate. Other examples are also there in the lesson and students could work with partners to complete the examples.21ST Century Lessons: A Boston Teachers Union Initiative provides resource for this lesson.
