Close reads of your favorite songs is a great idea for at home learning!

Close Reads are becoming more and more important as we continue to work toward meeting the Common Core State Standards in ELA. Close reading of lyrics will help students become more critical consumers of pop culture.

The pages in this resource will work with any song lyrics, but particularly well with those of I Am Bullyproof Music. You might even want to try having your students write some of their own!

Included in this resource:

Teacher directions for conducting a Close Read of Lyrics

Student direction page to glue into an Interactive Notebook or place in a binder

Student notetaking page with headers for writing responses after each of three close reads

Student notetaking page with First, Second, and Third Read labels, no headers

Student notetaking page with blank fields for you to add your own response labels

Simple Rubric for student self-assessment and/or teacher assessment of the Close Read.
