This 17-page document will catch the attention of your students. As the ultimate goal of the unit is to write a lyric, students will not even realize that they are studying the elements of well-written poetry. The packet includes poetry device notes; lyric structure notes; an example lyric ("Home," by Chris Daughtry); a student poetic device worksheet to go along with the example lyric; a worksheet to help analyze the process of lyric writing through quotes from well-known artists; a short article on the steps of writing a lyric; the directions for the lyric writing assessment project; and all of the teacher answer sheets needed for teaching the unit. I have to say that this is a crafty way to get your students to analyze poetry with a truly critical eye. A great writer learns from others, and that is exactly what this student packet will encourage. Your students will be making deep connections on the process of well-written lyrics (POETRY...wink, wink!), and supporting their ideas with the successes of current artists. If you have downloaded my Lyric Poetry Student Packet or Complete High School Poetry Student Packet, please realize that several of the pages of this document are similar to pages from those packets. The difference is in 3 pages (a worksheet to help analyze the process of lyric writing through quotes from well-known artists; a short article on the steps of writing a lyric; the directions for the lyric writing assessment project; as well as the teacher pages that go along with these documents). Please understand that this product does not include a rubric for grading the lyric, or step by step lesson directions on how to teach poetry or song lyrics. The worksheets will be extremely helpful for the teacher who buys this, and will allow for that teacher to personalize the unit to his/her teaching style. Thanks for your interest!
