Focus on Figurative Language

Using the poems "First Snow" by Ted Kooser and "Eating Alone" by Yi-Young Lee (or other suggested poems by Robert Frost or Sara Teasdale), middle schoolers search for examples of figurative language. Guide your learners by discussing what poetry is. Explore tone, imagery, and metaphor in the poems selected. A detailed plan is available if you click view under "Instructional Procedures."
