Plot Elements and Figurative Language
Teacher: Ms. Brasseur
Class: ELA 6
In ELA 6, students are exploring plot elements and incorporating figurative language into our writing. To do this, the students wrote a story as a class. This activity required that students demonstrated their knowledge of elements of plot and figurative language. Students were divided into 6 teams and were assigned a part of the story, as well as a figurative language type that their team would be responsible for incorporating into their part. This activity not only required critical thinking but creative thinking as well, as each team were only given 4 minutes to build off the team before in order to write a cohesive story.
