Analogies

Description

Develop students' thinking skills and vocabulary strategiesStudents use associations and relationships to determine the meaning of words and concepts. Educators have long realized that working with analogies teaches students to

  • recognize and analyze relationships
  • look for likenesses and differences
  • draw conclusions
  • work with multiple word meanings
  • have fun with words

Beginning with the basic fundamentals of understanding analogies, each book builds on previous editions—reviewing and introducing new analogy types and more advanced categories.

Each book can be used independently of the others.

Teacher GuidesInclude complete answer keys and extension activities for individual or small-group learning.
