Students will describe real-world events using figurative language.
In this flipped lesson, students will gain a deeper understanding of figurative language. In the video, the teacher shows students how even making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich can be described using figurative language. The video will be posted on the class wiki page with additional instructions. It is meant to be a review. Once students have seen the video, their challenge assignment is to describe their own real-world event using as many poetic devices as they can. Examples of possible real-world events/objects/people will be listed, but students will be encouraged to come up with their own! Student can also illustrate their real-world event to use in conjunction with their descriptions.
