Module 9

To listen for specific information

Activity 1:

To be able to listen for specific information

[lo 1.3.1]

Listen carefully while your educator reads a story to you.

  • She will read the story twice.
  • Pick up the main themes on the first reading; the details on the second.

Now see how many questions you can answer from just listening:

  • In what grade was Joel?
  • What stimulated his interest in musical instruments?
  • What is the meaning of ‘vibrate’?
  • What instrument did his father play?
  • How is a high-pitched sound made in a piano?

What did he intend doing with his new knowledge about instruments and sound?

Explain the use of the commas in,

“ music-producing items include guitars, tambourines, bottles and glasses . .

Change the following into the past tense:

  • try
  • enjoy
  • go
  • see
  • bring
  • find
  • make
  • drink
  • speak
  • know

Why is there an apostrophe in “father’s guitar”?

The title “Sounds all Around” uses a poetic device. Give it its real name and explain it in the title.

Activity 2:

To be able to understand poetic elements: sounds and rhythm

[lo 3.2]

Reading rhythm and musical rhythm are very similar. We seem to remember words that form a rhythmic pattern quite easily, e.g. the repetition of ‘m’ and the assonance is attractive in . . .

  • Mickey Mouse rocks the house Say this a few times.

Now, as a group, write 6 – 10 lines of poetry that rhyme and make use of repetition.

e.g. The fox hid in the box, hid in the boxin a flurry; in a hurry, hurry, hurryThe goose, the moose, the goosy moosethe kangaroo and you, you, yousat on the mat, sat on the mat to wait for his mate, who came too late!

Now, as a group, rap your poem to the class.

  • You will need to do some rehearsing, so look at the next check list to see what you should do.
Rhythm ……….
Clarity ………
Liveliness ………
Team work ………

Activity 3:

To demonstrate ability to write creatively: the haiku and quartet

[lo 4.4.2]

  • A Haiku is a poem consisting of THREE lines:
  • Line 1: Words totalling 5 syllables
  • Line 2: Words totalling 7 syllables
  • Line 3: Words totalling 5 syllables

e.g. The sea feels the pullOf the wind and the currentAnd moves to the beach.

A quartet is a poem of four lines, rhyming ABAB or ABBA, usually in iambic pentameter:

This means a poem looking something like this, with the rhyme as follows:

Rhythm is: light-strong/ light-strong / light-strong / light strong / light-strong (5) syllables.

e.g. The sea / comes in / to play / today / for fun

  • So a quartet looks like this:

The sea / comes in / to play / today / for fun

The girls / and boys / arrive / and laugh / and run

The dogs / and cats / all seem / to un/ derstand

That play/ and sand / and sun / is real/ ly grand.

Now YOU try:

My Haiku

Final product:_______

My Quartet_______

Rough work:______

Final product:______

Activity 4:

To be able to read for information and write to communicate information

[lo 3.4.1, 4.1.3, 5.3.1]

In your group, do some research on a music group or music artist.

1. Choose an artist or group

2. THREE sources of reference in your bibliography.

Rough notes:

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.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
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?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
On having this app for quite a bit time, Haven't realised there's a chat room in it.
what is biological synthesis of nanoparticles
Sanket Reply
what's the easiest and fastest way to the synthesize AgNP?
Damian Reply

abeetha Reply
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.
Ramkumar Reply
what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
