I started using "Theme Thursday" in my classroom to motivate 5th graders to look at lyrics. I have been picking many songs that have powerful messages for all ages. The next weeks, I will turning it over to the students to bring in music. Of course, it must be approved the week before being used in the classroom. Here is a link to my wiki which contains some of the songs I have used http://team207.swsd.wikispaces.net/Theme+Thursday.
Thank you for sharing the link. I like some of the songs that you included and will incorporate them into my own lyric studies. I will post a list of some of my songs in a few weeks. I can't wait to see what songs some of your students pick and will be checking back often!
