I Have a Metaphor

Students locate the literary devices used in Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. In this figurative language lesson plan, students first distinguish between similes, metaphors, analogies, personification, etc. Students watch a video of Dr. King's speech and work in groups work to locate any figurative language included in the speech. Students create a presentation to share with the class what they learned.
