Teach students to use hyperbole effectively in their writing--and let them have a little fun too!
I created these challenges when I realized that my students -- who could parrot back the definition of hyperbole, and even identify it in their texts -- could not easily use it in their writing. The challenge is designed to give them practice with the process required to create an effective sentence (and paragraph) that uses hyperbole which, in turn, will help them better understand it in the texts they read.
First, there is a slideshow that reviews the concept of hyperbole. Next, you will find four different options for challenging your students to use it. Students can do the process alone or in pairs.
The hyperbole cards and student handouts are completely editable, so you can tweak them to meet the needs or your class.
I also have The Metaphor Challenge
, The Allusion Challenge
, The Idiom-Imagery Challenge
and The Personification Challenge.
