Product Description
This lesson will allow you, as the teacher, to help your student learn the power of language by using lyrics from rap songs they hear on the radio. I've also included poetry and a song from the Broadway musical "Hamilton" to make the lesson well rounded for everyone!

This lesson includes:
A guide on how to teach the entire lesson
Lyrics-Teacher Copy (at the end) SCHOOL APPROPRIATE*
• “My Shot” by Lin-Manuel Miranda
• “Moment 4 Life” by Nicki Minaj
• “Juicy” by Notorious B.I.G.
• “Harlem (What happens to a Dream Deferred?)” by Langston Hughes.
Student copy of lyrics (PPT posted in a separate post)
“Connect to It!” handout (at the end)

*I personally chose the lyric sets and made sure they were appropriate for the grades listed above. PLEASE remember to alter them for your classroom! There is another listing for the student copy of the lyrics because it's a PowerPoint; it'll be the same title as the full lesson.
