Attention English teachers! Use this information-packed PowerPoint to teach your students about figurative language devices. This is a great tool for the start of the year, or in the middle as a refresher. There are also activities that students can use to practice their figurative language skills. This lesson supports the Common Core State Standards for Language Arts, Reading Standards for Literature 8.4 and Writing Standards for Literature 8.3 d. Start with the Introduction to Figurative PowerPoint and then end with a quiz (see my store) that tests comprehension and critical thinking skills (DOK Levels 3 & 4).
