Music Monday #22...

"Home" by Phillip Phillips
*This has been a favorite of mine for quite some time.  
*I use to be an Idol fan in the early days, but stopped watching several years ago.
*The song came to my attention via the radio.  
*I have used it before with previous classes and has always been well received.  
*The music and words seem to hit a positive cord with my young writers.
*The message of the song is positive and speaks to the nature of "home."  

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
