Product Description

This one to two-day lesson will have your students singing the tune all day- whether they like it or not! Haha.

Using the lyrics of Taylor Swift's "Love Story," students are asked to identify poetic aspects such as allusion, onomatopoeia, theme, hyperbole and mood. You could always modify it to cover as many or few poetic qualities as you desire. I also have my kiddos highlight certain features within the work. As a bonus, I'll include an example of an explication process I use with "Richard Cory" so you can see what I mean- A second day's lesson should you choose to use it! (*It makes a reference to Dead Poet's Society and had to be scanned in though. Sorry.)

If your students have read Romeo and Juliet, then include question #8 on the "Love Story" handout! It has them draw connections between the song and the play.

**Shout out to Shmoop for the R and J summary!
