In Bud, Not Buddy, we see the world through the eyes of our narrator, Bud. The way he describes the world tells us a bit about who he is as a character, too. In this assignment, we will focus on figurative language that tells us more about the text.Figurative language is language that is not literal, or exactly accurate, but instead appeals to the senses by describing something in an unlikely way. Examples are metaphors, similes, hyperboles, and personifications. These can make writing more persuasive, effective, or impactful.

 The attached Lesson Plan is designed for Grade 7 English Language Arts students. Students will be reminded of the different literary devices by listening and watching a video that has a catchy beat. Students will then show what they know with 10 lines of poem which includes literary devices. If they are still uncertain of all the devices, another video is available to them to watch. The last section gives them the opportunity to look for literary devices being used by the author in Freak the Mighty. When students become aware of these devices, they will write them down, label them, and then explain how the device made the reading better. This Lesson Plan addresses the following NDE Standard: NE LA 7.1.6.cIt is expected that this Remote Learning Plan will take students 90 minutes to complete.
