Students are pop culture junkies, but one of the hardest concepts for them to grasp is STILL the allusion. This print-and-go, minimal-prep station activity uses timely song lyrics from some of the most talented rappers in the entertainment industry to give kids in-depth practice identifying, contextualizing, and determining the purpose of multiple allusions found within rap lyrics.
With songs from Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye, Drake, and Tupac, students will realize that allusions truly are EVERYWHERE!
My resource gives you everything you need to have five stations ready in a flash: station cards, question sheets, answer keys, allusion definition cards, and analysis questions. It's sure to be a memorable activity for your classroom that will stay with students long after it's over!
