Students will share their analysis of "Hope" is a thing with feathers" by discussing figurative language used and the meaning it creates.
An extended metaphor is comparing two unlike things for an extended period of time (more than a couple lines). Often times, an author chooses to use an extended metaphor because
although the items are unlike on the surface, they have similar characteristics.
This allows the reader to make connections between the two items.
Using "Hope" is a thing with feathers", write a 10-20 line poem comparing yourself to something else. Please be prepared for peer editing tomorrow!
