Students love music and especially appreciate the opportunity to study songs with which they are familiar. This file offers a collection of activities as you lead your students through a lyric analysis of the socially relevant text, "Scars to Your Beautiful" by Alessia Cara. Students will engage in reflective journal writing, close reading of the lyrics, build background by learning about the inspiration for the song, analyze lyrics for meaning, build vocabulary through text support, and engage in a seminar with included questions to help guide student discussion. Finally, students will tap into their creativity by designing a magazine cover they believe best represents the beauty within themselves and society. As a result, you will coach reading comprehension, fluency, and collaborative dialogue through a collection of meaningful activities!
