Teach Argument with Sweet but Psycho!

Ava Max’s “Sweet but Psycho” plays on a theme that often makes its way into popular music, and so it lends itself nicely to synthesis with similar texts.  This lesson bundle starts with a structured analysis of “Sweet but Psycho” with four different forms (each containing its own focus area), designed to be implemented in small groups.  The exercises that follow dig into close reading, comparative rhetorical analysis, and synthesis – all really great stuff!
