Read the college essay TP Triplet. Notice how the entire piece is an Extended Metaphor!


New Skill: Pun- A pun is a play on words.  It usually involves words with a double meaning or words that sound like other words.  Puns can be excellent titles for your piece.  Check out this list of 26 puns from Buzzfeed.
