Reflection: Student Ownership Similes - Section 4: Sharing Out


Students are recognizing that similes occur all around them and are showing signs of applying what they learned in real world context.  One student was reading Junior Great Book story of Jack and the Beanstalk when she suddenly realized that the author used a simile and excitedly shared that discovery with me.  The Great Book Simile Connection shows that students are more aware of literary devices authors use and their purpose in text.
