Reflection: Complex Tasks Connect To the World and Don't use 'Slug'gish Words - Section 5: Apply What You've Learned

 

When I planned this lesson, I added some figurative language that I thought would be familiar to the students.  I read the phrases aloud to them, but the students had a hard time explaining the meanings.

I gave some examples multiple examples about how to use these phrases and personify the slug and then the students were able to use them in a limited way.  Here's an example of one student artifact . We'll do more lessons with figurative language in the future so students can comprehend it better and use it in different ways.
