Reading & Writing Unit: Simile, metaphor, and analogy
This resource will get your students engaged while blending opportunities to read, write, and collaborate. Best of all, it's all ready for you to use with step-by-step instructions.
The reading and writing bundle gives you several mini-lessons and activities that explore three commonly used figurative devices:
⭐️ The extended simile
⭐️ The extended metaphor
⭐️ The analogy
Students will learn to distinguish between each device and then explore the ways that authors use language to make effective comparisons. They will do close readings of short mentor texts to determine the meaning of the figurative language the writers have used. There are several detailed mini-lessons with eye-catching slideshows designed to keep your students engaged and learning. (Download the preview to get a close look at all that is included)
Next, you have multiple options for independent and collaborative work, including several writing assignments. There are also eight extension lessons that you can use to explore how these devices are used in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
Everything is editable, including the rubrics, so you can tweak to fit your purposes.
