Hi everyone! My name is Ms Geraldine and I am an English Teacher and Curriculum Specialist at Lil’ but Mighty. In one of my earlier blogposts, I shared the different question types found in Narrative Comprehension. So for today, we’re carrying on with the theme and will be looking at Analysing Similes and Metaphors in Narrative Comprehension.
In particular, we will be taking a closer look at one such question type in greater detail: the Language Use for Impact question. This question type will require you to analyse various literary devices used in Narrative Comprehension, and explain why the writer has chosen to include them. Usually, the writer uses a literary device to emphasise something about the story. It is up to you to identify what this ‘something’ is!
Now, as you can be tested on a large number of literary devices, there are just too many for me to cover in one video. So today, we will focus on learning how to analyse two of them: similes and metaphors! Let’s get to Analysing Similes and Metaphors in Narrative Comprehension!
