Teach your students “how to” identify and learn figurative language. The unit comes complete with a suggested goal, a rubric, and student checklist for easy progress monitoring. A lesson plan and nine, 30 minute activities are also included. That’s one lesson for each week of the marking period! This method of teaching and data
collection will allow you and your students to determine which strategies are most helpful, in turn creating a clear, and individualized picture for them on “how to” learn language.
Use this unit to gather information regarding “how much your students already know” about figurative language via the use of the Pre-test. Next, teach students about figurative language using the teaching tool and information sheets. Additional lessons include 20 task cards for each of the following figurative language: alliteration, hyperbole, idioms, onomatopoeia, personification, similes and metaphors. That’s a total of 140 cards. (4 additional blank cards included) Target one figure of speech per week for a total of 7 weeks (sessions). Wrap up the unit with a Post-Test, and review and discussion regarding identification and application of figurative language. Please visit my store for additional language-based learning strategies.
