Variations of Pain

Students listen to the song :King of Pain" by the Police. They identify different instrumentation and different rhythmic accompaniments to the opening vocal phrase and explore the text in-depth, discussing the various poetic images of pain. Then, using the local newspaper, they discuss the variety of ways pain is expressed by people affected by tragedy. In a creative writing assignment, they rewrite a factual news article to express the emotions of a person afflicted.

Lesson Planet has helped me differentiate my classroom as needed. I always find it easy to adapt work for struggling learners but find it more difficult to adapt work for higher level learners. By using lesson planet I get great ideas to create fun, challenging work for my higher level learners.
