The Homework Battle
Body percussion and Movement Lessons –
The Homework battle is a rhythm battle between a teacher and students. In this lesson, we will be using body percussion to stomp and clap the words of this speech piece. We will discuss form, dynamics, rhythm, and layer two rhythms together. At the 6:43 part of the video, you will be able to see "The Homework Battle" typed out and be able to hear the two parts put together.
Materials needed- just your body and an electronic device or computer
Difficulty level- Younger students can learn the A section by just speaking the words or clapping and speaking. Older students should learn the whole lesson.
