"King of Anything" - zastosowanie piosenki w dydaktyce szkolnej dla uczniów liceum

Wprowadzenie
Przedstawiam poniżej konspekt lekcji dla młodzieży szkoły ponadgimnazjalnej, w którym wykorzystałam piosenkę Sary Bareilles pt.: „King of Anything”. Piosenka ta stała się dla mnie materiałem wyjściowym do ułożenia ćwiczeń wprowadzających słownictwo i prowokujących młodzież do dyskusji na temat relacji między młodymi ludźmi oraz ulubionych wideoklipów. Myślę, że taka bezpodręcznikowa forma lekcji może być alternatywą na ciekawą realizację zagadnień maturalnych i podnoszenie uczniowskiej motywacji.
Agnieszka Szymańska, Kościan

STANDARD MATURALNY: Rodzina, Człowiek

PRESENTATION
1. T writes the subject on the b/b.
2. T hands in the song’s lyrics with gaps to fill in. Ss do two exercises (ex. 1 which refers to the first stanza of the song and then ex.2 which refers to the rest of the lyrics). Firstly, they get a list of words to fill in the gaps in the first stanza of the song. Ss work in pairs, listen to the first stanza and then read out their guesses. After that ss listen to the rest of the song twice and fill in the gaps. Ss read out their guesses (the exercises are included at the end of the plan).
