This product has students compare Dylan Thomas' poem "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" and Ed Sheeran's song "Even My Dad Does Sometimes"
Paired passages have become all the rage, and I thought this would be both a fun and challenging way to teach with paired passages!
Included in the product:
-How I use this in my classroom (Including how I differentiate this activity between my low and high students)
-Annotated poem and song
-Line comparison activity with some suggested answers
-Compare and Contrast paragraphs template
**suggested answer key for annotations and line comparison included. However, I believe that poetry and music are subjective and very personal to each reader, so be aware that your students may have a different take on both pieces.
