Music Monday #21...

"The Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson
*We are going back to 1988 this year with a classic song by Michael Jackson.
*The words and message in this song are quite powerful and speak to all humans.
*The discussion that can stem from the video and music can impact all of my students.
*As disturbing as some of the images can be, I think it is important to show our young people that they can reach out, look at themselves, and make a real difference in our world.
*This is one of my favorite MJ songs and am always excited to share it with my writers.

Step One:  Watch the video
Step Two:  Class discussion about the video and what the message is
Step Three:  Watch the video again
Step Four:  Listen to the music as we write our reactions in our writer's notebooks
