Day 16: High School Tip – Encourage Literary Devices

My hair is a nightmare!  Metaphors

 

Encourage the use of literary devices.

Surely students survive the stress of statistics.  Alliteration

Childhood disappears like the morning dew on a mountain lake.  Similes

The drama followed her like a Jane Austin novel.  Literary references

The waves appeared to be guided by the hand of God.  Thematic evaluation

Use them all for really terrific essays!
