Product Description
Glorious by Macklemore is a powerful, positive song.
In this lesson, pupils explore the language choices in the song and how they relate to key emotions and themes.
Pupils go on to interpret key quotations from the song and make inferences about what success and the good life mean to Macklemore.
This builds to a short piece of argumentative writing, evaluating a statement.
Pupils finish with a creative task, requiring them to again consider key ideas in the song and how word choices can be precisely chosen to reflect this.
A song with a great message about happiness.
