Poetry Analysis Using Lyrics – ANALYZING SONG LYRICS

Poetry Analysis Using Lyrics – ANALYZING SONG LYRICS


Do you want to motivate your students to learn poetry elements? Analyze lyrics from a variety of artists! There are ten songs to analyze. My students loved it and so will yours. Also included are links to the songs to listen to them, links to the lyrics, and a general list of questions to analyze poetry elements with any song. It is now available for Distance Learning through GOOGLE SLIDES and POWERPOINT where students type in their answers. Use the PDF if you are printing, because it has lines for students to write the answers.
