Comm Arts-Day 6 Bell Ringer: Below are some complex sentences and compound sentences that use imagery. Please choose two sentences and break them up using line breaks. (3 minutes) 1. Although I enjoy the smell of sweet, crisp mint, I also like the scent of fresh roses. 2. I plan to enjoy this sunny, bright, joyful day and go to the park. 3. Although the biting wind lashed out at me, I kept walking to go to school. 4. Since I plan to eat the cheesy, gooey, creamy mac and cheese dinner, I will work out.
Lesson Goal and Essential Question Lesson Goal: I can apply literary techniques to convey meaning. I can explore my relationship with nature. Essential Question: How do I clearly convey my ideas? What is my relationship to nature?
Figuartive language What is it? Discuss with your group and create 1 definition with 1 example. (3 minutes)
Simile and Metaphors Both are comparisons, except similes usually use like or as (can use than) to compare. Metaphors compare things by saying something is something.
Guess Who? (2 minutes) The river was as quiet as a mouse. The crown of flowers were more beautiful than one made of diamonds. She is a powerful lioness. After she dances, we all feel we have seen heaven.
Personification Giving human-like traits to non- human things. Examples: Opportunity is knocking at the door. The Harry Potter books were flying off the shelves!
Hyperbole An exaggeration! It could be so ridiculous that it must be false. Examples: I have a ton of homework. It’s so fluffy! I’m going to die!! I am so hungry. I could eat a horse.
Comm Arts-Day 2 (Bell Ringer) Please take out your homework from last week. You should have a song that has some sort of figurative language that we discussed. Share with your group and explain what you believe the artist is trying to communicate through their figurative language. Also, share your reasoning for picking this song. (3 mins)
Figurative Language is Everywhere! We can find figurative language in songs and movies! Today we are going to listen and watch several songs. Each one will have a different type of figurative language in it. Please make a chart. It should have three columns. 1-What type of figurative language is being used? 2-What is the example of figurative language? 3-What is the author trying to communicate through this piece of figurative language? *Note: Some songs have multiple examples of figurative language! Use your notes. What type of figurative language is being used? What is the example of figurative language? What is the author trying to communicate through this piece of figurative language?
Nature and Me (For Richard Chase P. 28) (2 mins) We are going to reread the poem from yesterday that describes the man as a mountain. Please write down all the figurative language you see as you read. Why is this figurative language necessary to the poem? How does it help you understand what the poet is trying to communicate?
Now take that one thing and compare yourself to it using figurative language (3 minutes) Example: I am peaceful, like a gently, flowing creek, passing through the green forest, as the birds sing sweetly their song of content.
Group Time! (12 minutes) Now, you will make a two to three stanza poem, each stanza should be five lines, with your group using the comparisons you made. Add to your poem at least two senses.
Exit Ticket How does comparing yourself to nature help you convey your relationship to nature? (2 minutes)
Homework Please find a song using either a simile or metaphor. Write or print out the lyrics and highlight the simile and metaphor.
