This lesson introduces the idea of ballads; using nursery rhymes as the hook. I orginally showed a nursery rhyme from YouTube to the class; but took it off the slideshow so I can be sure it isn't breaking property rights. PDF version of slideshow included. Aligned to Common Core State Standard: RL.7.5

Standards

Analyze how a drama’s or poem’s form or structure (e.g., soliloquy, sonnet) contributes to its meaning.

Nice resource. I might elaborate on the peer review part so that students have clear guidelines for grading a peer's work.
