Approximately one month since the spread of COVID-19 was officially declared a pandemic, 21 Pilots released a new single: “Level of Concern.”  This song was released at a moment when well over 100 countries have been in a state of partial or total lockdown for nearly a month – and as such, it provides us a rich text to analyze with particular attention to message, purpose, and occasion.  Scroll down more details about what this lesson bundle includes!

Lesson Description

Wonder what this lesson bundle includes?  Look no further!  This lesson is comprised of three parts:

  • A guided close reading and rhetorical analysis that spans four pages.  This activity contains excerpted lyrics, guiding questions for analysis and discussion, and space for student analysis / annotations.
  • An exercise that prompts students to reconsider the argument when framed as having different speakers and different audiences.
  • A quick visual rhetorical activity that asks students to consider how a series of devices / purposeful choices have a rhetorical impact on the song’s official music video.  (Great as an entry-point to the lesson, or as a homework assignment to continue practicing close-reading and analysis through the visual medium!)
