This includes lyrics to "La bicicleta" by Carlos Vives and Shakira, a comprehension activity with the lyrics and a Cloze-passage quiz.
In the lyric activity: students only use the lyrics (no dictionaries) to find vocabulary words using context clues, find different examples of verb tenses, translate phrases using context, find the main idea of the song and finish with a cultural comparison.
It usually takes me one class period to learn about the singer, listen to the song, watch the video and work on the worksheet. A week later, I will give the Cloze-passage song quiz as a listening assessment.
I've used this in my AP Spanish class but can easily be adapted to other levels.
