IntroductionMusic videos are an important part of the lifestyle of many youths, they have been spreadover the whole world by the television channel MTV (Music Television)1 and they havebecome an essential aspect of the popular culture. Obviously, the Hessian curriculum hasrealized the importance of music videos: The topic Young People Exploring the World(Jugendliche und ihre Welt) for 11th grade includes the sub-topic Culture and Media(Kultur und Medien)2.

This sub-topic deals with all sorts of pop culture, (music, videos,literature, advertisements, fashion, sports, etc.).Music videos are excellent for matters of foreign language education, they provideauthentic material3, which is a welcome variation for many pupils who are only used toartificial learning materials, and they are very interesting for pupils because they are part oftheir everyday life.

camera perspectives,cutting techniques, etc., so that the students understand that in a music video (just like in amovie) everything has a purpose and a certain effect on the spectator. Equipped with thisfundamental knowledge, the students are enabled to analyse their specific music video on their own and to present them to the class, and the rest of the class can discuss or addaspects which the presenter may not have found.

In this termpaper, I will present an exemplary teaching unit...
