Do you want to motivate your students to learn poetry elements? Analyze lyrics from a variety of artists! There are ten songs to analyze. My students loved it and so will yours. Also included are links to the songs to listen to them, links to the lyrics, and a general list of questions to analyze poetry elements with any song. It is now available for Distance Learning through GOOGLE SLIDES and POWERPOINT where students type in their answers. Use the PDF if you are printing, because it has lines for students to write the answers.

Some poetry elements included in the questions are:

Rhyme Scheme

Author's purpose

Figurative Language


Meaning of the Lyrics

I like to teach one a month and my students beg for me to do more! I download the song for them to listen to as well! At the end of the year, they get to bring in their own lyrics to analyze with their peers. We jam out!

Links are provided for lyrics and songs. *If you are in Google or PowerPoint, take out this slide if you don't want students accessing YouTube or AZLyrics.
