Reflection: Coherence Points of Literature-Main Idea and Details - Section 4: Students Take A Turn

 

A few students in my classroom have been trying to use similes and metaphors in their work. We have discussed this concept a few times, but I have not taught a formal lesson about this kind of figurative language.

This was a teachable moment - I could have stopped and talked more about this figurative language and had planned to do that, but the lesson was already too full. I did not want to overwhelm the students with another new skill while they were focusing on the lesson topics. Sometimes, you can applaud a students' attempt at using a new skill, but not take the time to correct it. In this video, you can see me verify to the students that they are using a skill, but not ask them to fix it.

It was helpful to see the students' attempts and I will plan to do some demonstration and practice with similes and metaphors so all of the students can use them properly.
