Using Metaphors to Teach Social Studies.
Mahood, Wayne
Social Science Record, v21 n2 p12-14 Fall 1984
Social studies teachers can use metaphors--analogies that use familiar, concrete language symbolically representing reality to discover and explain regularities--to help students make sense of the world around them. Characteristics of metaphors are discussed, and ways for developing metaphors are presented. (RM)
