Reading Bundle One
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
This mini-lesson uses the song "Caged Bird" by Alicia Keys, along with poems written by Maya Angelou and Paul Laurence Dunbar,to teach the following ELA Reading Literary Text Standard:

COMPARE AND CONTRAST THE STRUCTURE OF TWO OR MORE TEXTS AND ANALYZE HOW THE DIFFERING STRUCTURE OF EACH TEXT CONTRIBUTES TO ITS MEANING AND STYLE.

The lesson offers three different activities that can be used together (for a two day lesson) or as individual mini-activities. This is a difficult standard to teach, but using music is a great way to ease your students into compare and contrast analysis.

The packet includes:
+ An overview handout that mentions the target standard and its importance
+ A handout that contains the song lyrics, poems and analysis questions
+ Three author biography handouts with internet links
+ A Symbolism compare/contrast chart
+ Answer keys for the activities
