Analogical reasoning is a method of processing information that compares the similarities between new and understood concepts, then uses those similarities to gain understanding of the new concept.
This lesson is a great prerequisite assignment for a creative writing piece. It subjects the students to analogous reasoning and how they can incorporate this component into their present writing assignment. There are so many individual components to touch on before an adequate writing piece can be established. The best way to foster prose is by tapping into each student's creative sense by utilizing a good deal of descriptive writing so they feel comfortable with the writing process. Afterwards, other styles are sure to follow with great flow if the basic foundation is taught first.
This lesson defines analogous reasoning, gives one example paragraph to follow so that the concept can be clarified. Then, two more examples follow for the students to try on their own. Finally, a short paragraph is required to allow them to try it first hand.
