Teaching students to analyze poetry can be challenging. This product uses pop culture music (almost any song of your choosing will work) to engage students in discussion about lyric poems.

This two-page activity includes analysis questions which encourage students to identify parts of poems as well as open-ended, high-interest critical thinking questions that will help teachers facilitate lively class discussions. Analyzing poetry through music can be fun. Use this engaging poetry analysis assignment as a hook for a larger poetry unit, as a tool to teach students about analysis, or just because!
