Guiding Questions
  • What is poetry?
  • Why do people write poetry?
  • How do poets use literary devices to create
  • How do the structures of poems help to create
    meaning? How do poets both use and break the
    rules of punctuation (commas, semi-colons,
    periods, dashes, etc.) and capitalization to
    create meaning?
  • How can I affect the meaning of a poem based on
    my own reading and interpretation?

    sense of self and identity and address issues and
    themes that are important to me?

Music Lyrics as Poetry
First Song Grenade, by Bruno Mars
Second Song River of Dreams, by Billy Joel
  • 1) Find and bring in the lyrics to a song in
    English. Be prepared to explain what it means
    and how you might see it as poetry.
  • (Remember the song must be appropriate to share
    in school!).
  • 2) Read the lyrics to the song Volcano and
    answer the questions on the back.
  • We will listen to the song at the beginning of
    class tomorrow.
