Over the last month and a bit, students have been working in groups to produce their own instructional videos about figurative language and poetic devices. There are 5 in total that cover the topics of similes, metaphors, alliteration, onomatopoeia, and personification. Below is the first of these.
These videos have helped us each learn about these topics to a better degree, but we’re also very happy to know that they could end up helping other people with their understanding as well. Plus, it is pretty neat to see your work up on youtube for the world to see (the Vimeo version has been posted here because many schools cannot access y0utube).
When the other 4 have been finalized, they will be posted as well. We hope you enjoy watching them as much as we enjoyed making them.
For teachers who are curious about the process we undertook to make these, you can find our instructions available here.
Let us know what you think. We’re always open to feedback.
