Teaching students to analyze poetry can be challenging. This free resource uses pop culture music (almost any song of your choosing will work) to engage students in discussion about lyric poems. Song analysis activities make teaching poetry fun!
This song analysis activity is included in different versions:
1. A condensed two-page graphic organizer
2. A 14 page resource with one question on each page so you can use them individually, with learning stations, or with gallery walks
This resource is included both as a Google Slides resource and as a secured PDF you can print.
The included prompts help with analyzing song lyrics to teach poetry. They encourage students to identify parts of poems, analyze figurative language, and apply critical thinking.
Questions in this song analysis activity will help teachers facilitate lively class discussions. Use this engaging poetry analysis assignment as a hook for a larger poetry unit, as a tool to teach students about analysis, or as a one-day, stand-alone lesson.
I recommend this resource for use with middle and high school students.
Note: This activity is editable.
UPDATE: This analyzing song lyrics resource now includes a Google Slides version!
