This item includes all ten of the "Close Reads Using Lyrics!"
My students love music as much as I do and close reading can be difficult, so why not start deep reading with something that students love? The songs included will allow students to think deeply using the questions that are based on each song, as well as to further their understanding of how to pick text apart.
Song lyrics, 8 close reading questions, and theme/author's purpose/analyzing text graphic organizers are all included with this guide.
The lyrics, the metaphors, and the overall theme of these songs will create conversation with your students which will have them thinking deeply while reading and listening to the lyrics.
Song Lyrics included are: -Wake Me Up, by Avicii -Lemonade, by Phil Vassar -Let It Go, by Idina Menzel (from Disney's Frozen) -Stand By Me, by Ben E. King -Compass, by Lady Antebellum -Count On Me by Bruno Mars -Time of Your Life by Green Day -Roar by Katy Perry -The House That Built Me by Miranda Lambert -Where is the Love by The Black-Eyed Peas
Song lyrics can be used without copyright infringement. The actual musical versions of the songs are NOT included in this package. There are all available from iTunes and other online media sources for $1.29 (or less) each.
