Song Worksheet: War by Bob Marley

I did a lesson on Bob Marley's war song. I asked the students to listen to the song and then identify the singer. I then gave them a snap shot of his biography. I asked them to listen to the song again and to complete the missing bits in the lyrics hand out. I then went through difficult vocabulary and asked ss to verbally make sentences with these words.
Afterwards, i asked them to discuss their views on the meaning of the song. This helped them to learn new vocabulary, debate serious issues and listen to a different accent. The vocabulary is tricky and need to be pre-taught.
