This spoken word performance by Grand Corps Malade is for intermediate/advanced listeners. In the lyrics, the performer uses alliteration and wordplay to paint the image of good and bad parents. I have highlighted difficult words from the text. The words are listed in a table where students are asked to ID whether they are nouns, verbs, or adjectives. Students are asked to define the words but to first look at a clue that I've listed that will relate the word to another French word they know, to an English word they know, or to a Latin prefix or suffix. Once they have finished analyzing the song and listening to the performance, I have a graphic organizer where they will write adjectives from the lyrics that describe a good parent or a bad parent.
This song fits perfectly with a unit about HUMAN RIGHTS or FAMILIAL ROLES.
