Metaphors are fun to teach through poetry! Short poems are ideal for teaching a metaphor targeted mini-lesson...in context! Strong picture support helps English Language Learners (ELL) and learners of all abilities to understand metaphors.
Your students will discover wonderful metaphors in the language rich poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson, Sara Teasdale, Vachel Lindsay, Emily Dickinson, Sinclair Lewis and more.
Let the power of poetry help you teach (metaphors) smarter, not harder!
