Group Work:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.1
Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.4
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone).
W.9.9-19.9-Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Objectives: Students will be able to distinguish between simile and metaphor, state the uses of each of each in poetry, and reflect on the effect of similes and metaphors in poetry.
When referencing the figurative language terms, simile and metaphor, what do these two terms have in common? How are they different? What effect do similes and metaphors have on poetry as a whole?
Song Lyrics
Now that we have looked at what constitutes a simile and metaphor, we are going to use Stereo Hearts to identify how similes and metaphors function in songs and poetry.
Using the original list in your packet choose one universal theme which would relate to the overall meaning of the poem.

Write the overall theme you have chosen in the square box provided on your handout.
*Answer the following question in 2-3 sentences on the right side of the theme box.
Use the final handout in your packet and record a theme for each stanza in the poem. Also record a theme for the chorus of the song.

Examples of Similes and Metaphors:
*My students are as cute as buttons.
This class is as chatty as a two year old.
Music is ointment to my ailing heart.
Y’all are as precious as the sun is bright.
Teaching is the water that fills my cup.
The test caught Sally off guard, like a deer in the headlights.
I sang like a bird choking on nails.
Children are sponges.
Like one leaves impressions on one’s memory foam pillow, one also leaves impressions on the minds of one’s children.
Your attention is the mountain I must overcome in order to teach you anything!







My students are as cute as buttons.

This class is as chatty as a two year old.

Ya'll are as precious as the sun is bright.

Like one leaves impressions on one's memory foam pillow, one also leaves impressions on the minds of one's children.

Music is the ointment to an ailing heart.
Teaching is the water that fills my cup.
Children are sponges.
Your attention is the mountain I must overcome in order to teach you anything.


Create a two column chart and entitle the left side similes and the right side metaphors.
Universal Themes in Poetry:
The controlling idea of a poem is the idea continuously developed throughout the poem by sets of key words that identify the poet's subject and his attitude or feeling about it. It may also be suggested by the title of a poem or by segment of the poem. It is rarely stated explicitly by the poet, but it can be stated by the reader and it can be stated in different ways.
Examples: Love ,Hate, Life Lessons, Good vs. Evil, Truth, Facing Challenges, etc.
Secondary Themes in Poetry:
Secondary themes in poetry are other themes which are evident in a poem, but not considered the main theme. Secondary themes usually support the main theme.
