This download includes:
1. 16-slide PowerPoint showing examples of figurative language in "All Shook Up" by Elvis Presley and "Replay" by Iyaz. If you click on the photos, they will link to the YouTube videos, but I recommend just purchasing the two songs and linking from your own computer.
2. Student handout of the song lyrics. While I play the song, students hunt for examples of figurative language. Then I go over the examples using the PowerPoint.
3. Directions and a rubric for student group work where students will find and present their own songs to the class.
4. A list of 24 contemporary songs that contain lots of examples of figurative language.
to view some of my other products that focus on literary elements.
