Paraphrasing with Proverbs
« on: December 07, 2009, 06:34:19 PM »
Here are some materials I created to get students to practice paraphrasing with proverbs ( I can't remember where I got this idea from, but I did get it from somewhere!).  I gave each student a proverb (use the proverbs on the handout that does not include their meanings), and I told them to try to guess what they thought the proverb meant and describe it to a classmate in their own words.  Then, as homework, I had students use the proverbs in sentences.
