By popular demand, we’ve prepared a video analysis and corresponding lesson plans that meet the needs of a younger audience. Nick Jonas’s lyrics and corresponding music video for hit song “Jealous” provide substantial opportunities for rhetorical analysis without the “mature content” associated with other pop songs.
You can access the video analysis itself below. Our corresponding lesson plans focus on close reading and rhetorical analysis, and include all pertinent handouts, discussion questions, and opportunities for differentiation. A jigsaw component (including four various handouts for small group analysis of visual rhetoric) is also included.
In short, your students will be swooning over rhetorical analysis.
