Use Jessie J's popular song "Domino" to teach figurative language, sound devices, and other poetry terms. You can decide how many and which devices you'd like your students to find. It includes two activities for differentiation and is aligned to the Common Core Standards for grades 9-12.
*PLEASE CHECK THE LYRICS BEFORE PURCHASE* The lyrics (both the content and language used) may not be appropriate for your students/school. Though I have used it successfully with my high schoolers, not every class is mature enough to handle them.
Those I've pointed out in this exercise include:
alliteration, anaphora, simile, metaphor, hyperbole, personification, onomatopoeia, rhyme, allusion, and assonance.
A list of definitions for each term plus detailed directions, teacher's guide, and answer key are ALL included. A link to the song and the lyrics for an online experience is included, as well.
Included in the zipped folder is a student handout and a separate teacher's guide. The PDF files can be projected to save paper.
