Please note that the preview is only a short clip of the actual passage from the product. It extends beyond what I have given. This is a short introduction to an extended metaphor. I also use it to review symbols. Typically I select a student to do a dramatic interpretation of the passage (you know, channel their inner Madea!) and we have a great time with it. After reading the passage, I give students the definition of an extended metaphor and have them to identify what is being compared in the passage. It is a great tool that they will remember.
