Reflection: Standards Alignment Was That For Real?: Identifying Non-Literal Language in Text - Section 3: Label New Learning


At this point in the lesson, the students and I are just about to embark on reading closely!  I've asked the students to look and think about the text carefully, paying close attention to the text to find any examples of non-literal language.  This close reading is great practice, and is one the key components of the shifts of the ELA CCSS!
