Description

Use popular boy band One Direction's songs "One Thing" and "What Makes You Beautiful" to teach and practice figurative language, sound devices, and the meaning of poetry and the speaker's message. Students can also do an extended activity connecting the song to a poem with a similar theme.

This IS included in my mega bundle: ALL of my POETRY RESOURCES GROWING BUNDLE and in Poetry Resources Bundle, Volume 2.

The exercises focus on the following terms or concepts:
alliteration, rhyme, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, idiom, theme, speaker's message, and making connections in literature. *Aligned to the Common Core Standards for Reading Literature for grades 6-12.*

Included in the zipped folder:
-Student handout with lyrics and prompts for "One Thing" by One Direction; includes a link to the music (in Microsoft Word and PDF)
-Student handout with lyrics and prompts for "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction; includes a link to the music (in Microsoft Word and PDF)
-List of definitions for each term (in Microsoft Word and PDF)
-Teacher's guide & answer key
-Poetry handout with example poems similar to theme of song

The student handout has detailed instructions. All files can be projected to save paper.
