Description

In this lesson, from ReadWriteThink, students use their background knowledge of figurative language. They listen to texts read aloud to them, and they explore texts to find their favorite examples of similes, metaphors, and personification. Students nominate their terms, vote on them, and write an acceptance speech incorporating figurative language of their own. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested.
