Would you like your students to use interesting figurative language in their writing? Or do your students study analogies, and you need a way for them to apply that understanding? Check out this pattern in two potential sentence studies: (A Thread)
"Beyonce is to Millenials what Christianity was to our grandparents; there's a societal expectation that you will be involved + occasionally perform conspicuous acts of piety" from theringer.com/music/2018/4/2…
Look at the frame here: "_____ is to ______ what _______ was to ______; _____EXPLANATION OF THE ANALOGY"
But wait! Look at this! SAME PATTERN!
"'Driver's License is to Gen Z what "You Belong With Me" was to Millenials, a rallying cry for everyone who's ever pined for someone who didn't love them back." from esquire.com/entertainment/…
I'm going to be using these sentences as a mini-lesson in my analytical writing unit. How could you use them? #BeyondLiteraryAnalysis #WritingWithMentors @MovingWriters
