Lesson Objective, Goal and Success Criteria
- Select two songs from the supplementary materials or two other karaoke version songs of your choice.
- Divide the class in half with one group facing a board where the karaoke song is presented while the other group turns their back to the board.
- Divide the group with their back to the karaoke song in 2 groups and give each group one separate word in the song to listen for (see visual diagram).
Visual Diagram of the Room:
|FRONT OF THE ROOM
|Karaoke song is displayed on a board at the front of the room
|Group 1 have their backs to the Karaoke screen-They listen for one assigned word in the song – a different word than group 2(this will be ¼ of the class)
|Group 2 have their backs to the Karaoke screen- They listen for one assigned word in the song – a different word than group 1(this will be ¼ of the class)
|Students who face the Karaoke board at the front of the room will sing the song to Group 1 and 2 students with back facing the board (this will be ½ of the class)
|BACK OF THE ROOM
- The group facing the karaoke board sings the first song to the two groups who are listening for each of their words.
- The groups who are listening for their specific words count the number of times they hear the word.
- The teacher counts the number of people in each group to get the right number of words correct and writes this number down until all groups have a chance to listen to the words.
