Modifying Team Building Activities For The Music Classroom
After dozens and dozens of conversations pertaining to team building with my colleagues in the physical/adventure education department over the past 12 years, I have finally bitten the proverbial bullet and purchased what is considered the bible of trust building, team building, and problem solving activities/exercises. Karl Rohnke's book, Silver Bullets: A Guide to Initiative Problems, Adventure Games and Trust Activities, is an abundantly fruitful compendium of games, exercises and activities for small and large groups. It is just about guaranteed the physical education teacher in your school has one in possession. Ask to borrow it to get an idea of how you can modify the myriad of activities Rohnke outlines for your music class.
