ContentionsHSCE: STANDARD 1.2 Use writing, speaking, and visual expression for personal understanding and growth.

Language is for discovery and through writing, one can more fully reflect on self identity and ideas

Tools such as visualization and drawing are precursors to thinking and writing.

Reflecting metaphorically requires non-linear, creative thinking.

The METAPHOR is the link to understandingGeico wants to create a message that says We are so easy to use that even a simple caveman can do it.

The metaphor in this ad compares Geicos simplicity to an ancient species to show that even those who are pre-modern can use it.

Metaphors in everyday speakingExcerpt from Onitsha by Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio, Nobel Prize n Literature 2008

It was the first time. He looked at Maou's face, the left side, as it gradually became a pure profile in the brilliance of the sky and the sun. Yes, he thought, this was it, this was the first time. And still he did not understand the tightness in his throat, this feeling which made his heart beat and filled his eyes with tears, because it was also the last time. They were going away, nothing would ever be as before. Beyond the white wake the ribbon of land was fading. The silt from the estuary had suddenly given way to the deep blue of the sea. The reed-spiked fingers of sand, where the fishermen's huts looked like toys, and all the strange shapes on shore towers, beacons, hoop nets, quarries, blockhouses all were lost to the movement of the sea, drowned in the tide.

Metaphors in writing

Who are you?Write for 5 minutes revealing your personality, qualities, strengths, and weaknessesThe word Mandala originated from the classical Indian cultural language of Sanskrit and simply means circle. These circles symbolize many things, including our whole self and our connection to the community.

Mandala

Research says On the outside we look like simple, individual people. On the inside, we are complex with countless roles in our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual lives. A mandala reflects the many parts of our one, whole being.Another way to think about it

The sun-shadow archetypes arise from thinking about the dualities in literature and our lives. Our history is filled with philosophies that are built on concepts of opposites: good and evil, war and peace, inner and outer, the haves and the have nots. These tensions are what drive us and our storytelling. Without an understanding of these patterns, a reader misses a whole layer of meaning available to them.

DUALITIESMetaphors brought to you by YouTubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rEyTNQ-72IObjectives in creating a mandalaYou will imagine, feel, observe, and analyze whole self

You will create metaphors and integrate them into your circular design.

You will weave sun and shadow metaphors into sentences which frame your drawing.

Write Your BioWrite a short bio including some metaphorical language to describe yourself. You may use the metaphors created in the MANDALA or new ones.

I would like to read these aloud and see if we can figure out whose bio I am reading.

Please write DO NOT READ if you do not wish for your bio to be shared.
