Disguised Thoughts (Using Nonliteral Language)

Non-literal language involves figures of speech, such as idioms, similes, and metaphors. We call these Disguised Thoughts and teach students to look for the hidden or disguised meaning. Learners gain a new level of comfort decoding non-literal language given ample practice and exposure to common figures of speech.
