Reading and Tribute Pieces

9 Dec

Today you will have time to work on your reading or your tribute piece.  We will read a student example of a tribute piece, entitled “My Superman.”  Notice in the piece that an extended metaphor is used throughout, as the speaker compares her grandfather to a super hero who has rescued her.

Skill – Rule of Threes- When giving examples, 3 is a nice round number of examples to give.  It has a finality and satisfaction to it.  It is not too many and it is not too few, it is just right.  Here are some famous examples:

“Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”
“Blood, sweat and tears”
“Location, location, location”
