Reflection: Checks for Understanding What Is Personification? - Section 3: Guided Practice


I was impressed by how my students were able to give human characteristics to the waves in the example from the main section.  One student said, "The waves are slapping the rocks," which I feel is a great example of personification.  As my students grow older and they are operating at higher cognitive levels, I know that they will improve in speaking and writing sentences using personification.  I think I did a good job exposing them to the content and they will only get better in future years.
