Rick Wormeli weighs in on metaphors contest

March 15th, 2010

How is a metaphor like a power tool in the hands of a good teacher? That’s the subject of Rick Wormeli’s new book, Metaphors & Analogies. It’s also the focus of a contest and online discussion we launched with Rick in January. Several teachers shared with us their favorite teaching metaphors and discussed ways metaphors can help students make sense of abstract concepts, connect new ideas to background knowledge, and highlight relationships between language and image.

Now, Rick has rejoined the conversation to select the winning entries in the metaphors contest and share his thoughts about the wonderful submissions. Read Rick’s commentary on the most interesting metaphors teachers submitted.

And check out the conversation and share your thoughts on our Metaphors & Analogies Group.
