Discovering and naming relationships is central to human thinking and communication. Studying analogies gives students tools to become better thinkers and better communicators. This book includes a full semester of basic analogies instruction and practice, as well as opportunities for students to create figures of speech associated with each analogy lesson. This book is an unprecedented integration of thinking skills, writing practice, reading comprehension, poetry appreciation, and story-telling. It is self-teaching, meaning no other resources are needed; it is intended for children and parents to use together. Structured according to the rhythms of the Challenge A seminar, one day of each week contains instruction in analogies followed by four days practicing what was learned together in the Challenge A seminar.
