Music K-8 has a new feature – "Diving Deeper Into The Music" interactive assessment PDFs.

These interactive PDFs are a wonderful new way to assess students' learning and comprehension of a few select songs in Music K-8.

Diving Deeper Assessment PDFs

Each Diving Deeper PDF includes a handful of questions related to a song in the magazine.

Students may answer these questions remotely by electronically filling out the form, saving their work, and sending it back to their teacher. Or, the PDFs could be printed and handed out in a classroom setting for students to complete by hand.

The Diving Deeper PDFs can be used exactly as they are, or you could use only the questions that suit your needs.



Free Choreography Video

Melissa Schott, Plank Road Publishing's choreographer, has created another of her hugely popular movement suggestion videos for you to use or adapt.
