Reflection: Relevance Allusion - Lesson 2 of Cinder Book Three - Section 2: Lesson


This is not the first time this year that I have asked students to locate examples of what we are studying in their "world". I do this becuase I want students to realize that a metaphor or an allusion is not just something they study in school.  I want them to know that it is an everyday part of their culture and understanding these elements of language is instrumental in "getting it" when they listen to songs, read ANYTHING, etc. I want them to see this as part of being an intelligent informed person.

A plus to this is that when they send or bring in examples it only adds to my example bank.  I am constantly using student discoveries in my teaching. Great way to show student ownership!
