Essential​​Question(s)

How​​prevalent​​are​​metaphors​​and​​similies​​in​​pop​​culture?

Lesson​​Objective

At​​the​​end​​of​​this​​lesson,​​the​​students​​will​​create​​metaphors​​with​​100%

accuracy.

Assessment/Criteria

Informal​​assessment:

Have​​each​​partner​​group​​share​​what​​they​​discussed​​during​​the​​turn

and​​talk​​and​​informally​​assess​​their​​definitions​​and​​examples​​for

accuracy.

Setting

Mrs.​​Carmody’s​​super​​cute,​​flexible​​seating​​classroom

Adaptations/Modifications

Relay​​Race

(guided​​notes,​​extended​​time,​​fewer​​questions,

Have​​lyric​​sheets​​for​​the​​songs​​printed​​off​​for​​students​​who

​​fewer​​distractors,​​alternate​​setting,​​etc.)

 

may​​need​​them​​as​​a​​reference.

Modalities

Visual:

(visual,​​auditory,​​kinesthetic,​​tactile)

Watching​​the​​music​​videos​​of​​the​​songs​​being​​played.

Auditory:

Listening​​to​​the​​songs​​when​​trying​​to​​find​​metaphors.

Kinesthetic/​​Tactile:

Placings​​the​​the​​strips​​of​​paper​​of​​paper​​in​​the​​hoola​​hoop.

Writing​​down​​the​​lyric​​that​​is​​a​​metaphor.

Instructional​​Strategies

Technology​​integration,​​cooperative​​learning,​​and​​discussion

(graphic​​organizer,​​cooperative​​learning,

​​discussion,​​technology​​integration,​​etc.)

   

Lesson​​Procedures/Activities

Est.

Write​ ​out​ ​detailed​ ​lesson​ ​procedures.​ ​​ ​Be​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​include​ ​4-5​ ​important​ ​questions​ ​you​ ​will​ ​ask​ ​during​ ​the lesson​ ​and​ ​the​ ​expected​ ​student​ ​responses.​ ​​ ​Your​ ​plan​ ​should​ ​be​ ​detailed​ ​enough​ ​for​ ​another​ ​teacher​ ​to teach​​it​​without​​having​​to​​ask​​you​​any​​questions.​​Numbering​​and​​bullets​​are​​permissible​​and​​encouraged.

Anticipatory​​Set:​​Review​​with​​students​​the​​definition​​of​​a​​simile.​​Tell​​students​​that

Mins

they​​will​​be​​working​​with​​another​​form​​of​​figurative​​language​​that​​compares​​two

unlike​​objects,​​called​​a​​metaphor.

What​​is​​a​​simile?​​(Give​​an​​example)

What​​is​​a​​metaphor?​​(Give​​an​​example)

Instructional​​Input:​​Continue​​working​​on​​the​​difference​​between​​metaphors​​and

similes.​​A​​simile​​uses​​like​​or​​as,​​but​​a​​metaphor​​says​​one​​thing​​is​​another​​thing.

Stress​​the​​importance​​that​​metaphors​​use​​two​​unlike​​objects.​​For​​example,​​in​​the

video,​​the​​lyrics​​said​​“My​​heart’s​​a​​stereo,”​​but​​a​​heart​​can’t​​actually​​be​​a​​stereo.

Why​​are​​these​​examples​​of​​metaphors​​or​​similes?

Modeling:​​Explain​​to​​students​​that​​they​​are​​going​​to​​continue​​searching​​for

examples​​of​​similes/metaphors​​in​​songs.​​Lay​​down​​two​​hula​​hoops​​on​​the​​floor,

with​​one​​labeled​​similes,​​and​​one​​labeled​​metaphors.​​Play​​the​​Youtube​​Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3mrP77ZNv0.​​Model​​from​​the​​song​​writing

the​ ​first​ ​answer​ ​and​ ​place​ ​it​ ​in​ ​the​ ​​ ​corresponding​ ​hula​ ​hoop.

Guided​​Practice:​​Have​​students​​help​​you​​find​​at​​least​​one​​more​​example​​of​​each​​as

you​​finish​​listening​​to​​the​​song.​​(Stop​​when​​attention​​is​​weaning).​​They​​will​​write

Beginning

this​​on​​a​​sheet​​of​​paper.

(Engage)

What​​were​​the​​examples​​that​​you​​found?

20

Mins

Independent​​Practice:​​Play​​more​​songs​​such​​as,​​“Red”​​by​​Taylor​​Swift,​​“Life​​is

a​​Highway,”​​by​​Rascal​​Flatts,​​“Hot​​and​​Cold,”​​by​​Katy​​Perry,​​“I’m​​Like​​a​​Bird,”

by​​Nelly​​Furtado.​​Have​​students​​continue​​finding​​examples​​of​​each,​​writing

their​​answers​​on​​strips​​of​​paper.​​This​​could​​be​​done​​in​​partnerships.​​At​​the​​end,

have​​the​​students​​check​​each​​other’s​​work.​​Challenge​​to​​find​​the​​well-hidden

ones​​so​​not​​everyone​​has​​the​​same​​answers.

Hula​​hoops​​in​​the​​center​​of​​the​​room,​​using​​pre-prepared​​groups​​of​​students​​around

the​​room​​and​​race​​to​​put​​the​​most​​accurate​​answers​​in​​the​​middle.​​Winning​​group

gets​​a​​prize​​the​​next​​day​​(in​​the​​center​​so​​they​​won’t​​run​​into​​one​​another).

(Teachers​​will​​tally​​up​​later).​​Rules:​​You​​have​​to​​confirm​​your​​answers​​with​​your

group​​and​​then​​ONE​​person​​runs​​it​​to​​the​​middle.​​Suggestion:​​Have​​one​​scribe​​and

one​​runner?​​-​​Make​​sure​​you​​decide​​this​​ahead​​of​​time​​in​​your​​group.

Mins

Closure:​​Have​​the​​students​​“turn​​and​​talk”​​and​​share​​with​​their​​partners​​the

definitions​​of​​both​​similes​​and​​metaphors.​​Also,​​have​​them​​give​​examples​​of​​each.

(Find​​someone​​who​​wasn’t​​in​​your​​group)

Formative​​Assessment:​​Have​​each​​partner​​group​​share​​what​​they​​discussed​​during

the​​turn​​and​​talk​​and​​informally​​assess​​their​​definitions​​and​​examples​​for​​accuracy.

End

(Extend/Evaluate)

Extensions:​​Students​​who​​need​​more​​of​​a​​challenge​​can​​write​​their​​own​​song/​​rap

that​​includes​​both​​similes​​and​​metaphors.
