Reflection: Checks for Understanding Figurative Language In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Day 1 of 2 - Section 2: Analyzing Figurative Langugae


Students did a great job selecting powerful quotes. Many selected the following quotes, which are incredibly important in this novel:

"She pulled in her horizon like a great fish-net."

"She called in her soul to come and see."

These are the examples of figurative language one students selected. She pretty much selected every single quote I would have selected from the pages I asked them to focus on. This lets me know that when they focus closely on the author's language, they are very much capable of discerning the most significant phrases and sentences.
