Non-literal or figurative language refers to words, and groups of words, that exaggerate or alter the usual meanings of the component words.
This mini lesson taps on the three main components of figurative language: simile, metaphor, and personification. Students are acclimated to the material via concise definitions of each. Examples ensue so that they can see the usage in action. Finally, students are asked to fill in their own literary components into key phrases.
This is an important workshop that should preclude a creative writing piece. It is through mini lessons such as these that students are able to work first hand with information that should be included in every descriptive writing piece.
