PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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

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.

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 note taking page with headers for writing responses after each of three close reads
Student note taking page with First, Second, and Third Read labels, no headers
Student note taking 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.
