Description

When introducing my classes to similes and metaphors I like to play clips from movies, tv shows, and other sources. The students watch and try to identify the simile or metaphor used in the clip, then we talk about what it means. I needed a way to do this digitally, and in an asynchronous format, so I put the clips onto Slides and added the questions we normally discuss in class. Students were able to complete the viewing and questions on their own, and then we discussed them during our synchronous session.

To use these slides, first make a copy for yourself. Second, delete the answer slides at the end. Third, make a copy for each student. Fourth, share the slides with your students, giving them editing rights (slides must remain in edit mode for students to type on them). Finally, explain to students how you want the deck returned to you.

To learn more about how I use this resource, see the blog post A Grinchy Christmas, Part 2.
