Product Description
I have used this unit to engage my 9th graders who were very reluctant to examine classic poems during analysis. This unit combines classic poems with modern song lyrics (poems set to music) in order to engage the student’s interest. Since using the modern twist on poetic analysis, I have noticed a large growth in classroom participation during our analysis of the poems. Plus, getting to listen to modern songs in school is cool!!! This short unit can be used in 8th, 9th, and 10th grades.
