Extended Metaphor

I’m teaching a lesson on metaphors on Thursday. I am going to teach the students to write an extended metaphor. I build up to it in the lesson and break it down step by step. 2 weeks in the school year have been allotted for poetry and I intend to make the most of it. Here is the example I crafted for the lesson.

I am a hurricane, an unpredictable tempest. ​

A deluge,​

All consuming, inundating, churning.​

Awash with ambition, weary, always learning.
