Music students will be motivated to practice and complete goals in this fun and effective year-long practice incentive program. Using solid instructional design theories, Road Trip: America the Beautiful ™ motivation program encourages and rewards students at just the right intervals while creating enthusiasm for music lessons.
Discover our nation’s most treasured National Parks and Monuments while inspiring students to practice for an entire year! Students practice and complete goals set by the teacher to earn miles on the giant game board (2 ft x 3 ft) hung in the studio. When they land on or pass a national park or monument, he or she earns a coordinating postcard with photos and interesting park facts.
Visiting each destination only once, music students must visit all 18 national parks and monuments to collect postcards. In addition, students learn more about United States geography. The back of each card provides an interesting fact about each place. Students can mail these postcards to a friend or family member to share what they are doing in music lessons or save them as a collection.
Each student’s goal is to finish the game during the year. Because they choose their path in the game, students are not able to easily see who is in the lead. However, competitive students may be motivated to finish first. They will ask who is first or if anyone has finished yet, and teachers may add a competitive aspect to the game by awarding a prize to the top finishers.
Teacher and parent-approved! Both teachers and parents have noticed increased motivation and results with this practice motivation program! Pack the car and let’s explore America!
