The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

"People Everyday" offers class members an opportunity to develop their literacy analysis skills and to develop media literacy. Guided by an included list of discussion questions, groups examaine the word choice, literary devices used, and consider the themes developed. They then contrast the first track of the song with a second included on the 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Day in the Life of . . . album. Following this pattern, the groups select and analyze a song of their choice. As an extension activity, the class contrasts Arrested Development's 1990's song with Sly and the Family Stone's 1960's "Everyday People." Because of language, be sure and preview the lyrics before deciding whether the resource is appropriate for your class.
