Through concrete lighthouse examples
, learners also see rhetorical devices that relate to their best ideas in ways that stump the opposite team.
Writing with figurative language in these tasks
- allows students to expand their creative ideas by comparing their thoughts with related images. Examples are included as illustrations.
To get used to writing with figurative language,
students will choose an icon that interests them and then they compare that image to an essay idea. For instance they might choose a lighthouse.
