Cultural Literacy: Metaphor

Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on metaphor. This is a half-page document with a reading of two sentences–one of them a complicated compound with multiple clauses, a colon, and semicolons (in other words, emergent readers and English language learners may need some support here) and three basic comprehension questions. In other words, an introduction to the concept of metaphor, but little else.

If you are teaching metaphor and seek more materials on this website, simply search “metaphor” from the home page. I just did, and was surprised how much material has stacked up here over the years.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
