A highly interactive, colorful, engaging 10-slide PowerPoint presentation on the implementation of figurative language in any English Language Arts classroom: with this PPT, you and your students will find:
a.) An invitation for students to dig into prior knowledge of figurative vs. literal language as an engaging, team-oriented warm-up
b.) figurative language overall definition
c.) learning targets (objectives for lesson plan)
d.) 6 types of figurative language, identified by the acronym "APOEMS" ~ alliteration, personification, onomatopoeia, exaggeration/hyperbole, metaphor, and simile
e.) images on each slide, including examples of each type of figurative language
f.) critical thinking, creative synthesis activity: whole group (full class) establishes a unique APOEMS for the iPhone
g.) synthesis, "on-their-own" activity for small group team collaboration where students create original posters on an object, creating and demonstrating APOEMS for their topics (eg. figurative language examples for a noisy cafeteria, etc.)
h.) slide transitions
i.) slide animations, from text/directives to images, etc.
j.) option to invite students to present -- formally in front of the class as a whole team, or as a round robin from group to group -- the following class period; this would invite the opportunity to assess students' speaking and listening skills, as identified in the CCSS, both for ELA specifically as well as for the anchor standards for college and career-readiness. Giving students the opportunity to present their work on figurative language as a collaborative team is a great way to identify teamwork/roles and where students require more support with switching "registers" for more formal English language presentations.
Everything is done for you! This PowerPoint can easily be adapted for any ELA course, grades 7-12. Included, you have specific, step-by-step directions to lead students from prior knowledge to synthesis in a cooperative learning team. In this way, you urge students into the higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (eg. moving beyond remembering and understanding/comprehending into applying, analyzing, and evaluating); you'll ALSO help students meet the Common Core standards of 21st Century skill acquisition, including media literacy, collaboration, communication, and problem-solving.
