Product Description
Common Core Language and Reading Practice Using Song Lyrics: "Roar" by Katy Perry

This IS included in Poetry Resources Bundle, Volume 2.

This activity uses popular song lyrics ("Roar" By Katy Perry, written by Bonnie McKee) to practice figurative language & poetic devices. It also includes exercises for students to analyze tone/mood and how the devices contribute to the overall meaning. *NEWLY ADDED (Feb. 26, 2014): Activities for analyzing word connotations (negative and positive connotative words/diction), syntax, and imagery.

In addition, it compares the song to two poems with similar themes. One by Edgar Lee Masters from his Spoon River Anthology and another by Edgar Guest. All activities are differentiated for multiple levels of learners.

Includes separate student handouts in editable format (Microsoft Word) that can be shared electronically (posted for students on secure server or emailed). Perfect for 1:1. ALL handouts come in PDF format, as well. Teacher's answer key included.
