Learning Goals
  • Understand that the elements of literature are relevant to our lives beyond literature.
  • Analyze elements of story by completing an Independent Reading Project.

Songs are played throughout every movie. Music represents and helps express all of the emotions, feelings, and moments in our lives.


Books are the same as movies!

Think about it: when you read a book, you can fast forward, rewind, pause, and play whenever you want, wherever you want.

So now you are becoming the Music Director and you are going to create a soundtrack for your book!


Your job is to pick songs that represent key parts of your book.

  • One for the beginning
  • One for the middle
  • one for the end
  • *These are songs the character would listen to at a certain moment to motivate them, or make them think, or feel a certain way.

Music Directors don’t just throw in any song, into a movie, anywhere they feel like. They must explain to the Movie Director why they want to use this specific song, at this specific time. They need to show the exact lines in the script of when to play the song and explain why.


You will be doing the same. You will providing the exact spot in the story where the song would be played. (textual evidence-

quote and page #)


You will also be providing a couple of lines of the song lyrics to show how perfect and relevant your song choice is to that specific moment in the story.


Additionally, you will also be choosing your book’s theme song. This would be the song played during your commercial or movie trailer. It should give the reader a sense of the movie’s lesson or big idea.


Lastly, think about the sequel to your book. What would be a song that your main character would listen to 1, 5, or 10 years after your book has ended???


For each song, you will create a PowerPoint slide with the following information:

  • Song title and artist
  • Selected excerpt of relevant song lyrics
  • Textual evidence to support song choice from novel (with page #)
  • Explanation of song choice and textual evidence

For example:

  • Textual Evidence:
  • “I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do there is a part of every tribute they can't own. That Rue was more than a piece in their Games. And so am I.” (p. 224).

“Roar” by Katy Perry

  • Song Lyrics:
  • You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)Already brushing off the dustYou hear my voice, you hear that soundLike thunder gonna shake the groundYou held me down, but I got up (HEY!)Get ready ’cause I’ve had enoughI see it all, I see it now


  • In the middle of the novel, Katniss would listen to “Roar” by Katy Perry on her iPod because she finally realized that if she wanted to win the Hunger Games and stay alive, she had to play smart. The Capitol expected a poor girl, like Katniss from District 12, to lose right away, but she stood up to them and showed them she was a fighter and they weren’t in charge of her fate. She’s more than just a piece in the games. She realized that she needs to stand up to the Capitol and show them she is more than this competition.

Other Examples:

  • “How To Save a Life”- The Fray
  • Katniss was so upset when Rue died. Even though she didn’t know the challengers before the games, she felt like Rue and a few others were her friends and didn’t want to see them die. She wanted to help them.
  • Lyrics:
  • Where did I go wrong? I lost a friendSomewhere along in the bitternessAnd I would have stayed up with you all nightHad I known how to save a life
