Class theme/topics discussed:
Creating a story
How did you pick this theme or topic?
They like music a lot, so I thought of creating a story from a song.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I played a music video without sound and they needed time to create a story in groups. Then, each group would read their stories and finally we would listen to the music video with the lyrics.
How did students react?
They liked it and created nice stories. They liked listen to a different type of music.
Did they engage with each other and you?
They engaged with each other very good.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Music from internet.
