Students love music and especially appreciate the opportunity to study songs with which they may be familiar. This file offers a collection of activities as you lead your students through a lyric analysis of the introspective text, "Paradise," by popular band Coldplay. Students will engage in lyric analysis, journal writing, exploration of big ideas through highlighted vocabulary, a meditation opportunity, and engage in a seminar with included questions to help guide student discussion. Students will also be able to create an artistic interpretation of their own "personal paradise." Classroom community will be nurtured through this reflective unit of study.
