Get your students engaged with poetry while learning how to analyze and closely read!
Often times students hate a poetry lesson before it even begins simply because it involved poetry. What most don't realize is SO much in the world is considered poetry, such as music. This lesson allows students to have a CHOICE and gets them to look at their favorite song in a different light without having to pull teeth.
Literary elements, diction, impact, meaning, close reading, and central idea are aspects your students will hone in on while being able to enjoy their favorite song!
