I enjoy having the students learn about the 6 goals of the Preamble by singing the "The Preamble" song from School House Rock. I will have them sing along to the video as a class, in rounds, by rows, and other creative ways to divide up the class. I then give them 3 simple quizzes. The first on has 10 missing spaces, then one with 20 missing spaces, and the final quiz is a blank piece of paper that they must write the entire Preamble word-for-word. I will then spend time reinforcing an earlier taught study skill of how helpful singing a song can be to learning important material. I will follow this up by having an essay on the test where the students are expected to state all 6 goals, describe what each means, and then give a modern example for each goal.
