Music Lyrics

on October 17, 2016


Our class has been using music lyrics as poetry to examine author’s meaning and the concept of themes. Once we figure out the author’s meaning we highlight the words and phrases in the song that are used to express the meaning. Last week we looked at Katy Perry’s “Roar” and Rachel Platten’s “fight song”. Words that came out to us were powerful, strength, taking control, finding their voice. Students also made the connection that both songs convey a similar message, hence the discovery of a common theme! Olivia, a student in our class was inspired by this and on her own time wrote her own songs that have a similar message. She recorded herself playing her guitar and sang “Supergirl” for us! I am so proud of her creativity. She has given me permission to share this on our blog.
