He Ain't Heavy, He's My brother
After my very successful figurative language in songs lesson, I decided to play this song before reading The Scarlet Ibis. Instead of copying the song onto a CD (after I legally bought it), I just brought my iPod and set of computer speakers to school. I was a little nervous about having a $300 iPod within reach of 150 15 year olds, but it turned out ok. They were impressed that I had one and respected my rule about not touching it. 7th period later put a note on the board - "Touch the iPod and die".
So for the lesson, we listened to the song and then "Trashed It". The lesson went pretty well.
