Crafting the Lesson (Me)
  • Metaphors are bridges. They create images by
    connecting any two different ideas, persons,
    places and things to show them in new ways.
  • Extended metaphors
  • When the two things are compared at some length
    and in several ways.
  • It is a longer comparison
  • Questions to ask yourself as you read
  • What is the Metaphor?
  • How are the characteristics of the second noun
    used to describe the first noun?

Crafting the Lesson (We)
Life is Dirt              The longer you hang
on              the smaller it gets.             
Get it wet,              and you've got
mud              on your hands.              Take
care of life              or it's
overrun              with weeds.             
Life can be rocky or smooth              and it's
great              for throwing at people.
  • What is the extended metaphor in this poem?
  •  List characteristics of the two things being
    compared.
  • Was the metaphor used through the entire poem?
    If so, then we have an extended metaphor.

    weeds, brown, rocky, smooth, throw it,
    shrinking, earth, bumpy.

Composing Meaning (Two)
  • As a class read Hope.
  • Number the stanzas and lines.
  • Underline end rhyme and label rhyme scheme.
  • Write down the two unlike items being compared.
  • What qualities of the second item are being used
    to describe the first item?
  • Was refrain (repetition) used in the poem? If
    so, give examples.

Composing Meaning (You)
  • 1. On your own, read the poem, Hope.
  • 2. Use the poem to answer the questions.
