-for larger classes
Preparation: choose songs that are easy to understand and somewhat enjoyable.
1. Divide the students up into groups of 4-5 people.
2. Give each group a different song. Have them figure out all the words to the song. Make sure that not just one person is doing the work, but that it is a group effort.
3. Give them the entire class (one hour) to work on it. Next class, have them return to their groups to practice one time.
4. You then have the group as a whole, stand up and sing along with the recording.
-this is fun for the students if they all participate and work together.
-choose both popular and silly songs to keep their attention and interest
