Students love music, and as teachers, we must use what they love to help us teach! This song is all about oxymoron, and it's sung to the popular tune of "Royals" by Lorde.
Impress your students by singing the song to them, or have your students sing along with you. You may even try finding an instrumental or karaoke version of the song online to sing along to. Once you’re done, challenge students to find each oxymoron in the song. There are 17 of them in the song! As an enrichment activity, you may want to challenge your students to write their own song to exhibit knowledge of a literary device.
