Tuesday and Wednesday: Extended Metaphor Piece

9 Sep

This week we are focusing on our first writing piece, the extended metaphor piece.  Your task will be to write a piece that makes a comparison between two things throughout the piece. You may write a poem of at least 12 lines or write a prose (not poetry) piece of at least 250 words. We will be in the computer lab A206 on Thursday to type, and the final copy is due in class Friday.

Tuesday and Wednesday in Class:

You received helpful information about the writer’s notebook.  We also read “My Sorrow” from the packet (read it here:my sorrow).

Quick Writes: write about  1. What you want 2. What you feel 3. What you pretend about 4. What you worry about.

We then had time in class to begin writing our extended metaphor piece.

Skill: Sensory Imagery

Sensory Imagery: descriptive language that uses any of the five sense (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch).

Our five senses are how we experience the world.  Without them, how would we know what is going on around us?  How would we even know anything is going on around us at all?

Describe the input your five senses are receiving to help your reader understand what it was like to experience what you are writing about.
