Similes and metaphors amplify ideas, thus it is incumbent upon the reader to interpret and make meaning. Similes and metaphors have two parts: the tenor and the vehicle. By learning how vehicles work, students become much more sophisticated readers. This analysis tool teaches students how similes and metaphors work--and how to use them to amplify and make meaning. This tool is great for levels freshmen through AP Literature and Composition. Thank you, Hawk from a Handsaw.
