PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Figurative language enriches our reading and listening adventures and adds depth to our understanding of the piece. In my latest Middle and High School English lesson plan,
"Language Arts Activity: Message - The Meaning is in the Words," students explore similes, metaphors, personification, sensory imagery and hyperbole in the stories that they study in class.

They exhibit their understanding for the types of figurative language with their selections to analyze, and deepen their comprehension with their explanations.

This Activity has three parts:

Part A - Find three examples of each of the following literary terms. By the type of figurative language, copy the passage that you chose along with the page number. Next, explain its meaning.

Part B: Your Turn - Create your own figures of speech. Make each one fit the people, setting or plot of the book that you are studying in class, and

Part C- Closure: Address each of the following questions.
1. Which type of figurative language do you find the easiest to identify? Explain your response.
2. Which type of figurative language do you find the hardest to identify? Explain your response.
3. Which type of figurative language do you like the best to create? Why?
4. Which type of figurative language do you like the least to create? Why?

This standards-based and Bloom's Taxonomy aligned language arts lesson encourages middle and high school students to decode the meaning in the author's words, and to find the "message" in passages that are often confusing.

Happy Teaching,
Connie
