This is the second lesson I taught in a series looking at Ballads. This lesson introduces the ballad 'The Highwayman'. My school also had a video or CD of a song version of the ballad; which some may want to use. The song is called 'The Highwayman Song' (I believe) and is sung by Loreena McKennitt. 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.
