Objective

Requires students have previous knowledge with powerpoint, video editing, etc.

Students will create a multi-media or interactive presentation to demonstrate their understanding of similes and metaphors.

 

Do Now

What are similes? What are metaphors? What are ways we can show someone we understand similes and metaphors.

 

 

Hook

Show students video: http://www.havefunteaching.com/educational-videos/language-arts/simile-video

 

 

Note: teacher the video is silly. Let students know this before hand. Explain that you want them to pay attention to how the author uses words, images and sounds to explain what he knows about similes.

 

 

Direct Instruction

Tell students they will be creating a video, songs, images, etc to show their knowledge of smilies and metaphors. They can be as creative and as unique as they want but they must use appropriate language, dress, etc and they must clearly explain what a simile or metaphor is. They will work in groups of four to complete the task. Assign plan, prepare, practice and presentation days based on class schedule. General rule to follow: 1 day to plan, 2 days to prepare & practice, 2 days to present. 

 

Guided Practice

In this particular lesson, you may want to demonstrate or brainstorm possible presentations. Remind students they don’t just have to create a video,  webpage, the can use posters, put on a play, create a song, powerpoint, etc.

 

Independent Practice
