Introduction:
 This lesson will help students understand different note values, and realize their place within a measure, and ultimately a rhythmic phrase. By the end of the lesson, students should be able to use their knowledge to create their own four measure rhythmic phrase.
Development:
 I will start by explaining what notes are, and show their value in relation to other notes. This will be presented in a manner that the students will be able to clearly map out different notes values on their own.
Practice:
 I will write a few notes on the board, then ask the students to write the equivalent of that note using other notes.
Accommodations:
 After the students complete the group work, I will ask one student from each group to write their rhythmic phrase on the board. As a class, we will then clap the rhythms in unison.
Checking For Understanding:
 The students will then be required to create three rhythmic examples for homework.
Closure:
 This lesson will proposedly help students understand the values of basic rhythms, and how to apply them to a real musical setting.
Evaluation:
 1. Answering questions on overhead 2. Group work 3. Homework
Teacher Reflections:
 After everything is graded, I will evaluate the success of the lesson.
