I am teaching a poetry unit to my seventh graders and to keep them engaged and interested we are using song lyrics as poems and identifying figurative language and poetic devices within them. I want to make this interesting for them and integrate technology in some way. They will be writing their own poems this week and what I would like to do is have them take the poems and match them to music and make songs in a sense.
Has anyone ever done these. Can you recommend any resources to accomplish this?
