What to do:

  • Choose a piece of music with positive lyrics. (No negative, violent or bad language pieces will be allowed).
  • Choose the section you wish to emphasise and prepare a CLOZE PROCEDURE exercise.
  • There must be 20 missing words to be filled in on your prepared page. Supply the name of the song and the performer(s).
  • Supply the missing words on a separate page.

MUSIC that has stood the test of time – POP = POPular. See how many singers/groups you recognise by supplying one song for each artist.


Choose a piece of music for the learners to listen to, e.g. Imagine by John Lennon or Gangsters Paradise or Remember the sunscreen. Draw up some questions for them to answer. Have straightforward facts, e.g. list four things John Lennon wants you to imagine/ When will you dance the Funky Chicken? Also have questions asking for opinions, e.g. do you agree with John Lennon? Say why.

Popularity can be very fleeting. Some songs make it to the Number 1 spot, only to be knocked down the very next week. But some songs continue to be POPULAR for decades. The most POPULAR group of all that have stood the test of time is the FAB FOUR – The Beatles.


  • Research and report : Start at the beginning right up to the present. Use music in your presentation.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
