It’s Thriller night! Here are two lessons for your intermediate and advanced ESL classroom based on the music video for Michael Jackson’s Thriller (1983). Both lessons contain variations for in-person instruction with and without group work as well as online classes.
Thriller is a great song that students love. Students’ familiarity with (and hopefully affinity for!) Thriller helps motivate them through a lengthy and challenging listening, leaving them with a sense of accomplishment and a better understanding of one of the world’s favorite songs by the end of the lesson.
