Product Description
This assignment walks students through defining an extended metaphor, and practicing identifying them in 6 popular songs. (You can play clips of the songs for the kids on YouTube, but I found most of my students were familiar with at least a few of the songs.) Then they read and annotate the poem (full text included) to analyze the extended metaphor. Next, there are 7 accompanying poetry analysis questions. Finally, the students will create their OWN extended metaphor poem in the style of Whitman's by identifying someone who is important to them in their life, and mimicking the style of O Cap to write a poem about them in a synthesis poetry writing assignment.
