Our Year 7 Class have been exploring the use of figurative language in the poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” By Samuel Taylor Coleridge. This is a teacher presentation designed to support this analysis.
The presentation that accompanies a lesson introducing the process of language analysis to a Year 9 English class. In this lesson the students are shown an example of metaphor – and then are given a different excerpt from the text and asked to detect and explain the metaphor they find in it.
