PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Karaoke is a wonderful activity to review and reinforce concepts. It allows students to put content material into their own words, deepening their comprehension of the information.

About the Product

This project can be used in any unit to demonstrate understanding of key concepts and vocabulary. I have used this in science and social studies units as a summative assessment. The project can be assigned over the course of a week.

★Check it out!: This project is included in the Summative Assessment Projects Bundle at a discounted price!

(A sample timeline can be:
*Day 1: Present the project (using the provided two-page worksheet) and assigning students to pick a song for homework.
*Day 2: Providing time during class to begin planning in small groups. Pass out the provided planning page for students to work on. Students will continue working on assignment for homework.
*Day 3: Providing some time during class for small groups to collaborate. Then, depending on the length of content to be covered, the students can have as little as one additional day to a few additional days to work on the project at home.
*Due Date: All students will submit typed lyrics of their parodies. All students will provide the teacher with a web link to the karaoke song online. Each student group will present their lyrics. If possible, the teacher will play the karaoke song and project the lyrics for a live karaoke concert.)I have found this project to be extremely effective when students work in small groups of 3-4 students. I believe 3 is the ideal number.

Included in this Product:
♦ "How to Write a Parody" reference (1 page)
♦ "Project Guidelines" (1 page)
♦ "Planning Pages" for students to analyze the song lyrics/song to make sure it will be adequate for changing the lyrics as well as to plan their parody content (key concepts, vocabulary, etc.). (2 pages)
♦ "Grading Rubric" for students to self-assess their work prior to turning in their project. It can also be used for grading the projects as a formative or summative grade. (1 page)

Live Karaoke of Parodies in the Classroom:
The instructions for this activity are written for students to do a live presentation to the class. Projecting the students’ lyrics and playing the karaoke version of the song as the students present the lyrics are a simple and effective way to have students present. You may also consider extending the project, depending on your students’ gifts and skills. Students may choose to bring in instruments to play the song music.

Digital Presentation of Parodies:
They may also make a video or audio digital presentation of their material. If students choose to make a digital presentation of material, consider having them share over a safe sharing site such as a protected Vimeo, TeacherTube, Google Drive, or Edmodo account (just to name a few), as opposed to a public YouTube channel. While making a parody falls under the “fair use” policy without infringing on copyright, court cases often have debated whether a song qualifies as a parody.
