Teach Figurative Language and Connotative Language using film clips

Watch Maya Angelou’s “STILL I RISE” poem, and other spoken word poetry performances and ask students to: “Identify, interpret and analyze the poem’s figurative language and theme.”

Want more fun practice ideas? Instead of boring task cards or worksheets, use a read aloud video of “Where the Wild Things Are” or film clips from “The Little Prince” to teach tone, mood, connotative language, negative connotation, positive connotation and figurative language. For a print and go lesson plan and student handouts including a mini lesson video (to replace a traditional lecture) along with a figurative language study guide, CLICK HERE.
