This is a set of fun activities to get students to analyze text and write a narrative essay using their favorite song. There are activities and resources to help students learn how to analyze text (including poetry and songs), and step by step instructions on how to use this in your class.
It’s also a great way to get to know your students by finding out what kinds of songs they love and why. It helps to teach multiple reading and writing strategies in an interesting and engaging way. I hope you enjoy this activity as much as my students and I do.
