PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity permits the teacher to present students with practice in identifying metaphors, similes, personification, and various types of imagery (gustatory, tactile, auditory, and olfactory) using examples from Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men.

The first three-page handout shows students how to chart the parts of a comparison. An example of a metaphor, a simile, and personification are provided as examples for the student. A blank chart is then provided for students to do their own analysis of each of these types of figurative language from the text. As a follow-up to this activity, three quizzes with keys are included that require students to look at an example from the text and identify the type of figurative language used by the author.

A second handout provides students with information about the various types of imagery used by Steinbeck in the novel. Two worksheets are then provided with keys that test the students’ ability to identify imagery as gustatory, tactile, auditory or olfactory. These worksheets can be used for either practice or for testing student knowledge.

Student handouts are provided as well as five texts with keys.
