Reflection: Quizzes Mighty Metaphors - Section 2: Metaphor Meanings and Examples


During our guided practice time students were doing a good job working and explaining metaphors. I give them a worksheet to take as a quiz on similes and metaphors. Students will be explaining what is being compared and the meaning behind each one. I make sure to make it clear that they need to have at least one sentence telling me what is being compared and one that explains the meaning. This is the basic requirement for getting points on the quiz.
