Our Analyze Figures of Speech on Meaning/Tone lesson plan teaches students about figurative language, how it’s used, and how to identify different types. During this lesson, students are asked to read idioms or figurative phrases and determine the literal meaning of the phrase. Students are also asked to read statements and decide which form of figurative language they are: allusion, hyperbole, idiom, metaphor, onomatopoeia, oxymoron, personification, or simile.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify examples of figurative language in a text and know what they mean and will be able to distinguish between figurative and literal language in a text.
