Songs make a great impact on student learning, and when there is a chance to analyze the text, the learning that takes place is unbelievable.
This lesson is based on the song “Fix You,” by Coldplay. The song has a great message that students can pull out using the lyrics from the text as a basis.
Song lyrics, 8 close reading questions, and theme/author's purpose graphic organizers are all included in with this guide.
Students will deepen their understanding and use critical thinking skills to understand the meaning of the song with the questions included.
The lyrics, the metaphors, and the overall theme of this song will create conversation with your students which will have them thinking deeply while reading the text.
Look for more close reading songs soon in my TpT store. :)
Thanks for looking.
