PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This song has completely captivated me. "Glory," by Common and John Legend from the movie Selma helps teach students about what happened in Selma, when Martin Luther King helped all African Americans in the United States obtain equal rights. The struggle was real, and this song helps students understand what African Americans (and our entire country) were going through in the fight to create a country of true freedom. This song also has messages to help students understand that the fight is ongoing.

Song lyrics, 8 close reading questions, a first-hand account from a child, 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.
