This is a CLOSE READING activity for the song "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten. The students will read the song three times (and hopefully sing along a few times too!) and focus on a new strategy each time they read.
First Read - focus on Figurative Language
Second Read - focus on the Mood of the song
Third Read - focus on the Theme of the song
Also included is a notes page that shows the elements of poetry to review before they begin reading. Perfect to add to their reading notebooks. And finally, there are six Close Reading Questions that follow the reading activities.
This is a GREAT way to show how people USE figurative language and how powerful words can be in a way that is relate-able to the students.
