Class Experience

Learners will improve their understanding of personification and analyze examples with more success in translating figurative language to literal.  Learners will study the integration of science and social studies which will support the understanding that personification carries the pretense of human abilities.  Learners will make the connection that these devices of communication are tools.  Learners will synthesize the derivatives of personification from Latin and apply that understanding to a mnemonic picture.  Learners will also create their own personification with or without a template guide. 
I have over 25 years of experience in the classroom and online teaching language arts.  I have tutored and privately teach all core subjects.
Learners will demonstrate their learning by creating their own personification expressions. Templates are also provided for those learners to complete an original expression rather than create their own, for some this provides more support for expression.  Both methods will demonstrate conceptual understanding.  
No extra requirements are needed.  None of the learners’ own creations will be used as examples in other classes.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Only "public domain materials" and my original materials are used in this lesson as class content
