The Top Notch Pop Songbook, by Joan Saslow and Allen Ascher, contains forty original professionally written pop songs in a variety of styles -- classic pop, rap, ballad, blues, Latin -- composed and scored to reinforce the vocabulary, social language, grammar, and pronunciation every language learner needs.
Each song has a reproducible language activity worksheet for both receptive and productive language practice. Answer keys are included. Complete lyrics to each song allow learners to read and listen -- or listen and sing along.
All songs are clearly classified as low-beginning, beginning, low-intermediate, or intermediate. An at-a-glance Language Focus Chart makes it easy to frind the language students are learning and locate the song that reinforces that language.
The Top Notch Pop Songbook can be used as a course supplement or for self-study. Two audio CDs contain all forty songs. A CD-ROM contains the karaoke version of each song so it can be played on a personal computer screen or projected in the classroom for the whole class to enjoy.
