Reflection: Lesson Planning Figurative Language - Lesson 4 of Cinder Book Two - Section 2: Lesson


When you are planning lessons be very careful to present correct information to students.  If you are using information obtained on sites like Youtube, be sure to check the information presented for accuracy.

In this lesson I presented students with videos that demonstrate the figurative language I want them master.  However, I choose my videos carefully.  There are many incorrect videos  out there misuse the term -especially when it comes to figurative language.  The mistake I find most often is that terms such as alliteration and onomatopoeia are included and identified as figurative language in many videos made by both teachers and students although these are sound devices not figurative language.

Bottom line, anyone can post a video on Youtube.  Be sure it presents information correctly before exposing your students to it. Goodness knows they do not need to be confused by misinformtion.
