Teach your students to recognize and examine author's craft by exploring authors' use of figurative language. The graphic organizer includes sections for recording imagery, similes, metaphors, and hyperbole, as well as a short definition of each. It is a great tool for deepening understanding of expressive fiction and poetry.

Teaching Tips

After students use the organizer to gather other examples of other authors' figurative language, have them create an organizer to help them write a creative piece of their own.
