This lesson would be well-received by middle and high school students because it allows for student choice within a set of standards-aligned parameters. The music focus is engaging, as students select a song that has relevance and meaning for them, and they are encouraged to make the cultural connections as part of the analytical writing component. It feels like a strong combination of standards and relevant content that would draw students in and allow them to demonstrate not only mastery of standards but personal and cultural connections to a piece of music that is important to them.

This is a great lesson. It allows the students to choose the song that is meaningful to them with no perimeters put on it, which means students can choose songs in another language. It shows that poetry is across all cultures, it looks different. The last part also has cultural questions in it. It asks to connect these songs to your culture and how use it uses teh poetic tools to explain the complexities of your culture.
As a member of the Culturally Relevant Teaching Hub Academy, I really enjoyed seeing the connections you allowed students to make to songs they enjoy and their own culture. The essay part was my favorite part because of the relevance factor.
