Testmoz - The Test Generator A Five-Minute Activity to Bring Music into the Classroom Wouldn’t you like to be listening to the latest hit on the radio and find out that you are able to understand the lyrics?Wow!!! Don’t you, every now and then, sing along even though you can only remember some of the words from the chorus and you don’t have the slightest clue about what it means? I’m sure you do! We have all been there! But time flies and the course is short and even though I feel listening to a song can be as good as doing a traditional listening comprehension exercise the truth is that dedicating 20 minutes to a song never seems to fit into my lesson plan . The idea is to bring music into the class as often as possible but without this activity taking too much time off my lessons. In this song , we focus on the verb “to try” ♥Orally introduce the word you want students to learn by giving examples and asking them to infer the meaning. ♥Choose a song that contains the word or words you want to teach ♥ Third time: students sing along; yes, why not?

BOB DYLAN | BLOGGISH When I heard the news of the Nobel Prize in Literature awarded to Bob Dylan, I couldn’t help rejoicing and being delighted as I grew up listening to his great songs and when I was in high school – quinta ginnasio with my beloved and innovative teacher of Italian Mrs. Cattaruzza – we listened to his song Blowing in the Wind and discussed its meaning as an example of poetry. Therefore I couldn’t miss the opportunity to share some insights with you, my dear students. First of all, I was very surprised at realizing that most of you didn’t know who he was nor were they familiar with his songs. We started by doing some Jigsaw reading of some articles from the International press assigned to different groups who had to find the relevant information and summarize them to the members of the other groups. We then listened to some of his beautiful songs and honestly, it’s been very hard to choose which :). 1. 2. 3. 4. NOTE TAKING. KAHOOT TIME! Why did Bob Dylan deserve the Nobel Prize?
