Music in Lessons: The Cheesier, The Better!

Frequently, my students recommend music for me.

I’m often using cheesy music in class.

This for when we did a connect your writing, pull your essay together kind of lesson:

This when we started studying Othello:

This when it’s our ‘1 thing’ plenary: 1 thing learnt, 1 thing to improve:

This for when we were thinking about the features of a monster (as Othello becomes one):

I think you get the idea. To be honest- the chessier the better really!

So, the students soon learnt that I Iike music, or perhaps more likely, they think these cheesy choices reflect my actual tastes and therefore felt immediate intervention was required.
