This semester we have worked on understanding idiomatic language. Students have come to understand expressions such as "inside track," "basket case," "keep your nose to the grindstone," and today, "second wind." In class, we discussed the literal meaning, the second of two winds, and the figurative meaning, a rush of energy. Students wrote example sentences using the expression.
Tonight's homework is to illustrate the expression "second wind." In class, papers were folded vertically in half and horizontally one inch from the top. Across the top of the paper students wrote the expression. The first column was labeled "literal" and the second column was labeled "figurative." Pictures are to be drawn on each side to represent the meanings of the expression.
