Main Curriculum Tie:
Student Prior Knowledge:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
To make the notes taking process more engaging and fun, I do Academy Awards that I put up on my whiteboard to reward the students who really get into the singing and dancing part of the presentation. This makes it fun for them because they get up out of their seats, sing along, dance and then settle back down for notes.
Up on the board I write:
Best Letter Formations goes with the song USDA (Like YMCA). I tell them to win an award they must be singing the whole time, too.
Best Guitar Solo is a fake guitar strumming that happens at the end of Microbes They Might Kill You (We Will Rock You).
Best Swayer goes with the song We are the Microbes (We are the Champions)and I have them step side to side while they snap during the verse, then we sway during the chorus.
Best Michael Jackson Dance Moves goes with the song Stayin' Alive. I have to remind them that they still need to be singing to get the award.
Finally, Best Overall Vocalist goes to the student who has been singing, participating and doing everything really well all class period.
The winners come up and write their names on my board, as well as get a piece of candy.
