Here is another of my best selling Poetry Pairs! Since songs are really poetry set to music, they are ripe for analysis and comparison to more traditional poetry. This is the PERFECT way to get your students who hate poetry engaged in poetry analysis! A good way to initiate or culminate a unit on poetry! The themes in this lesson: Living life to the fullest and Becoming an adult, can be used to end the school year in a meaningful, rigorous, and fun way!
This product includes...
* A powerpoint that guides students through multiple readings of the song and the poem. Slides include Teacher Directions in the notes section.
* The ppt includes questions that target all of the Common Core Reading Literature Standards. Questions and tasks are labeled with the standards that are addressed. Answers are included in the notes section below each slide.
* Several engaging ideas for culminating activities are included.
