Song Analysis: Song Choice due

Due Fri Dec 01, 2017
Must be a CLEAN version. No curses or explicit references to sex, drugs, or violence. Choose a song that you can ANALYZE. Your favorite song might be catchy and fun, but it might lack substance.

Annotations due tomorrow for your poem from Poetry Outloud. Make sure you have all steps done: 1) Mark points of confusion: underline/highlight words you don't know and parts that are confusing 2) Define unknown words, writing definitions in the margin. 3) Paraphrase each stanza/chunk/sentence: putting it in your own words. 4) Identify all examples of figurative language and literary devices. 5) Look up author's background and historical context. Summarize it below the poem. 6) Identify and explain the tone, mood, and theme.
