Manie Musicale Novice Unit

Posted by: Michelle Fournier

This is a completely articulated unit to accompany the Manie Musicale competition.  It is based on the ACTFL template.  There are additional resources in the curriculum folder accessible to Manie Musicale teachers.

In this unit, students will participate in an international competition modeled after March Madness basketball using a bracket of 16 contemporary songs by Francophone artists.  They will reflect on the essential question, “What makes a song good?”  By the end of the unit, students will be able to express their opinions about songs, music, and videos, demonstrate increased understanding of and respect for the artistic contributions of diverse cultures, and do simple analyses and comparisons of music-related authentic texts.  They will connect with other communities of French speakers, improve their language skills, and have fun.
