Product Description
This lesson uses two songs, "So Alive" by the Goo Goo Dolls and "1-800-273-8255" by Logic to teach theme and characterization. Students are asked to pull lyrics from both songs and relate the lyrics to the character of Gregor in The Metamorphosis, and then compare/contrast the themes in both texts.
*Disclaimer: The song "1-800-273-8255" includes ideas of depression and suicide, as well as some vulgar language. This lesson is better for high school aged students and you should have a discussion with your students about these ideas before proceeding. This lesson was very beneficial for my classes, as we had positive discussions about these issues and how the character of Gregor could relate to being depressed himself. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
