This worksheet uses popular songs to teach kids how to evaluate an argument.You will need to cue each song for the kids, but they can be found on YouTube for free, or you can purchase them for a small price on iTunes. I have chosen 5 songs that all vary in type: rock, pop, and alternative. However, this is a Word document, so you can use my template and choose whatever songs you would like as you edit the document yourself.
Each portion of the assignment asks them to identify whether the song is using logos, ethos, or pathos to convince us of something, and then has them evaluate the effectiveness of that argument technique. The assignment also asks kids to find a song on their own that uses argument, and has them evaluate the effectiveness of that argument.
