Seventh grade English teacher, Alison Dalle Molle, teaches her students about literary devices in a blended learning lesson using media and application questions. Students were given a compilation of video and sound clips which contained a variety of today's most popular main stream music including Katy Perry's "Firework" and Miley Cyrus' "Climb". The students were also provided with a Word Doc digital handout containing a table (seen below) to accompany the media. The students identified as many literary devices hidden within their favorite songs and recorded them in the table. Picking out puns, metaphors and similes in the songs, the students included justification and evidence from the song.
