I clicked through because it seemed like such an interesting concept. A Lip Sync Battle? I’ve heard of dance battles, beatbox battles, and freestyle rap battles. But a lip sync battle, really?
As I watched the video, the teacher in me immediately saw the educational benefits of trying this in the classroom.
1) It would be a lot of fun.
2) It works on the performance aspect of singing without needing the chops to pull it off.
3) The competitive part will have the audience invested.
4) We could use this as a reward / fun day to entice the students to do their classwork.
I think I am going to try this out. I’ll let you know how it goes in an upcoming Teaching Tip Tuesday post.
