Reading Bundle #1
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
This mini-lesson uses the song "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" by Green Day to teach the following ELA READING LITERATURE STANDARD:

DETERMINE THE MEANING OF WORDS AND PHRASES AS THEY ARE USED IN A TEXT, INCLUDING FIGURATIVE AND CONNOTATIVE MEANINGS; ANALYZE THE IMPACT OF SPECIFIC WORDS ON MEANING ON TONE

Expect students to sing along with this class favorite song! Students will zone in on specific word choices, unexpected word choices, figurative language, and connotative meanings. And I promise, they will ask you to play it again and again, so get that internet warmed up! Use it as a mini-lesson before applying the same steps to larger pieces of literature that you are currently studying in class. This FOUR-PAGE handout is ready to print-and-use and would make a wonderful "end of the year" activity as well!

The packet includes:
+ A note-taking page that introduces the standard and why it is important
+ A handout that walks students through analyzing word choice and meanings
+ Copy of Song Lyrics
+ Handout that requires an in-depth look at the song's title
+ Teacher Answer Key for every section
