Product Description
Analyzing a metaphor (tenor, vehicle, ground, & gap) helps us appreciate poetry, but it also helps us learn. We relate new stuff with old stuff to make sense of it—then we can likewise share it with others. This 29-slide presentation explores various perspectives on metaphor: its definition, elements, characteristics, and challenges—in terms of everyday examples. America is defined with various metaphors to stress different aspects of a complex subject. We can also expand metaphors into analogy and stories, exemplified with the Gospel parable of the Sower. The presentation concludes with a reflective section on metaphors for how we learn.
Sometimes heart and mind persuasive techniques can work together more effectively than separately, and metaphor can create a bridge between thinking and feeling. See related PowerPoint: Slogans and Sound Bites as well as the animated GIF Toulmin Argument Model.
