Product Description
This product breaks down the lyrics to "A Dream" by Common, which is featured on the Freedom Writers soundtrack. It challenges students to look for the figurative meaning behind the lyrics and analyze the effect of specific word choices. There are 8 sections of lyrics with questions specific to those lines. This would work well for a jigsaw type activity with leveled groups, as the groupings of lyrics range in rigor. The song works well paired with any text that deals with oppression. I used it to support my Warriors Don't Cry unit.
