The English teachers at Lakeshore Middle School are working with their students on figurative language such as similes, metaphors, and hyperbole, and how language can make writing more engaging.

Jennifer Daniels explains what figurative language is and why it is important for making writing more attractive. She defines each of the types of figurative language, such as hyperbole, metaphor, and simile, and she then shows the students a written passage, points out different examples of figurative language in it, and carefully explains which type of figurative language the example is, and why it is an example.

Delaney Cross carefully explains what figurative language is and tells the students that it can be used to make writing more attractive. She presents examples, such as “That’s the most beautiful song in history,” “He is a paragon of virtue,” and “Her smile is like a breeze on a summer day,” as examples of hyperbole, metaphor, and simile, respectively. She then has the students write additional examples for homework.

Kevin Solano writes a series of vignettes about the school and the students, such as, “Lakeshore is the most stupendous school on the planet, and its students are gems that sparkle like the stars.” The class discusses the vignettes and with Kevin’s guidance identifies parts such as, “Lakeshore is the most stupendous school on the planet” as examples of hyperbole, “its students are gems” as examples of metaphor, and, “sparkle like the stars” as examples of simile. He then has the students work in pairs to write a short passage in which as many examples of figurative language as possible are embedded.

Chris Floyd defines different types of figurative language for students and then reads them a passage from their textbook in which several examples of figurative language are embedded. She has students follow along in their textbooks as she reads. When an example appears in the story, she stops, identifies the example, and explains why it is an example of figurative language. She then writes a series of examples on the board and has the students identify them as hyperbole, metaphor, simile, and so on.
