Product Description
The provided 8 Common Core rigorous activities explore figurative language (personification, similes, metaphors, and hyperbole) in popular commercials. The activities are tied to the Common Core standards RI4 standards. The activities focus on theme, figurative and connotative meanings, literal and denotative meanings, and inferences. Students will examine how the figurative language is revealed and developed in the commercials. The activities include a teacher answer key to assist you in your guided feedback to students. The video for each commercial is embedded on each Word document so that you do not have to look for the commercial. The video is in a standard AVI format so that it can be played on most computers, and teachers who cannot access YouTube at work can still show the video to their classes. As students view and analyze the commercials, they will become critical viewers and thinkers. Students will answer the following questions with the Common Core standard alignment for each of the 8 commercials:
1. What example of figurative language in the commercial? (RI4)
2. How is the example of figurative language developed in the commercial? (RI4)
3. What is the cumulative impact of the figurative language on the meaning and tone of the commercial? (RI4)
4. What are the advantages to the use of figurative language versus literal language in the commercial? (RI4)
5. What is the commercial's central message? (RI2)
6. Who is the central audience for the products advertised in the commercial? (RI4)
