PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this assignment, students are asked to choose a song and poem (we did this after a study of Harlem Renaissance poetry) and compare the two.

Specific Objectives:
SWBAT analyze poetry and song lyrics in order to identify and comprehend the use of figurative language
SWBAT determine the overall theme/message of the song and poem

Essential Questions:
What is the power of words?
How do poems and songs have the ability to reach people?
Are poems/songs more powerful than conversation?

There are TWO files included: the first is an assignment guide, which outlines the assignment and provides several scaffolded pages for students to dissect and analyze their song and poem, and then organize their written response. There is also an in-depth standard-aligned rubric included.
