Teenage pregnancy

May 14, 2013

Today we are looking at two songs, following the viewing of the film Juno yesterday. The first song is Papa Don’t Preach by Madonna:

The other is Billie Jean by Michael Jackson:

We’ll pretend that the two songs are two sides of the same story, one from the girl’s point of view, the other from the boy’s. Here are some questions to the songs:

“Papa Don’t Preach”

  1. What do you learn about the girl in the song?
  2. What do you learn about her boyfriend?
  3. What do you think about her decision?
  4. What does she mean when she says “it’s a sacrifice”?

“Billie Jean”

  1. What has happened, according to the boy?
  2. Is he telling the truth? What do you think really happened?
  3. Is he the father of the child? What supports this – what goes against it?
  4. What do you think of the boy – how would you describe him?
