Do you know the full power of a Quaver Media Slideshow?

One of the simplest and most powerful types of activities in the Quaver Curriculum is the Media Slideshow! These screens are perfect for leading a class discussion, brainstorming, or illustrating a musical concept.

For example – let’s take a look at 4th Grade, Lesson 3: Super Sixteenth Notes.

We start the lesson with a Media Slideshow meant to warm up the class and introduce students to the idea of Sets of Four!

First, students see an image of a Barber Shop Quartet. You might ask them for other ideas. “What else comes in Sets of Four?”

Sets of Four 1

Don’t overlook that little arrow on the side of the picture! 

That’s the magic of the Media Slideshow. Click the arrow to see more examples to help your class discussion take flight!

Sets of Four 2

As long as you see that arrow to the right, there are more images just waiting to be scrolled through!

Sets of Four 3

You can also go backwards to the previous slide with the arrow to the left of the graphic!

At the end of this particular Media Slideshow, you arrive at the Set of Four that will be the topic of the lesson – Sixteenth Notes!
