Our rhetorical analysis of Hozier’s hit song “Take Me To Church” (video embedded below) has been a hit in secondary English classrooms as the song’s lyrics provide many layers of powerful imagery, religious symbolism, and, of course, rhetorical strategies — all just waiting to be explicated!
Given the complex nature of this particular song, we’ve designed an equally thought provoking lesson that requires higher levels of thinking — geared toward students at the high school level. The lesson plan, corresponding standards, multiple handouts, essay writing extension, and appropriate links are all included in this bundle!
