The Day the Music Died
This worksheet is a humble tribute to three great musicians, besides being a unit on music and history that can be adapted for all levels:

Part I (Buddy Holly) is thought for Pre-Intermediate students, as a reading and comprehension and review of the comparative structure. (song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMezwtB1oCU )

Part II (Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper and the Winter Dance Party) are thought for Intermediate students. It contains a reading and comprehension task, a vocabulary exercise on slang and a listening. (song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jeksh48-mqY)

Part III (American Pie) is ideal to prompt a debate with Advanced level students. It contains an exercise on idioms, a reading, a grammar lesson on adjectives and adverbs with an exercise, and a listening. (video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsZFiMo8TIc)
