Pop Culture LEsson Plans
The super-engaging lesson plans that we're best known for.
Five years ago, we began crafting lesson plans that teach high level English concepts (argument, rhetorical analysis, close reading) using popular songs and music videos as texts for analysis.
Since then, our resources have expanded to include advertisements, commercials, politics, cultural trends, and other facets of popular media. These lessons are a surefire way to make sophisticated concepts accessible for students at all levels, to bolster engagement, and to maximize learning. Best of all, you'll save HUNDREDS of hours of lesson design! Just print, distribute, and teach the good stuff!
Popular music provides us with a continuous stream of new and engaging texts to engage students in analytical thinking.
From the presidential campaign trail to popular trends like fidget spinners and video games. These resources ensure that you'll hook your students every time.
What more authentic opportunity for rhetorical analysis than the millions of dollars poured into advertisements? And best of all, Super Bowl commercials!
