FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE: any use of language not meant to be taken literally, such as similes, metaphors, and personification
This is a complete lesson about figurative language. The definition of the term is followed by a discussion using excellent examples in poetry. Activity sheets provide questions that promote and ensure understanding, and a writing exercise that provides an opportunity for application.
Includes a teacher guide that discusses literary terms, suggests a lesson cycle, provides NCTE/IRA standards, and includes an answer key.
Figurative Language is excerpted from THE LITERARY TERMS HANDBOOK.
Figurative Language and The Literary Terms Handbook are products of Sunflower Education.
