Thread Name: ADD songs by Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer
Subject: RE: songs by Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer
When I was substitute teaching for a sixth grade writing class, the lesson for the day was poetry, words associated with it, and types. I was supposed to talk about simile and metaphor and sang the class the first verse of When I Go. I explained that every line contained one or the other. When the topic got to ballad poetry, I explained it was narrative poetry and the lines were easy to remember because they rhymed, then sang them Jim Jones as an example. The kids were surprised that anyone would sing to them in a lit class. The real teacher said they talked about it for awhile. Anyway, Dave Carter's songs are some of my favorites.
