Okay---trying to help friend who got the interview I wanted....need to come up with a 15 min mini lesson to teach VOICE. The position is for 7th grade Lang Arts. We are having difficulty particularly in the realm of assessment. One option we had was to have students listen to 2 different versions of the same song and note the differences in voice. Class would discuss reasons why the voice seemed different (era, male/female, etc). When listening, they were supposed to jot down emotions/thoughts that each song evoked. Again, the problem here is assessment. Any other lesson ideas, or assessment help with this plan would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
