Join Innovate ‘21: Blended Learning in Adult Education for a special presentation on figuring out figurative language with blended learning!

Presenters: Trudy Moore (Malcolm X College) & Linda Flannigan (Malcolm X College)


This dynamic presentation will highlight strategies and activities for Language Arts classes, including how to introduce and explore the process of identifying and using figurative language with students across a blend of modalities.

Tech tools include PowerPoint, Kahoot!, and Edpuzzle, leading to asynchronous, well-crafted writing tasks that use graphical organizers. Lessons then move on to music videos and poetry from the past and present to connect learners with real-world uses of figurative language. Learners then create their own discussion threads in CCC’s learning management system (LMS), Brightspace, with their own researched examples of lyrics or raps (radio edit versions), and reply to each other.

These lessons and activities enable students to attain student learning outcome (SLO) mastery in identifying figurative language and interpreting a variety of figures of speech, including slang, in diverse texts. The creative spin helps to keep students more engaged than in the traditional classroom.
