“The Metaphor” Handout: “How to Answer Literature Questions” Handout:  “The Metaphor” Questions Let’s work on the first question together. 1.  Why do you think Miss Hancock got along so well in junior high school, but had so much difficulty in senior high school? Support your answer with evidence from the story.  (/5 marks)
“The Metaphor” Remember to Start your question with a clear complete sentence that refers back to the question. Use the name of the writer or character the first time you refer to him or her; after you can use a pronoun. Write in the present tense. Use your own words to explain your answer. Ex: 	Miss Hancock got along better with senior students than junior students because . . . . .  Then, support your opinion with details from the story.  These details should be paraphrased or quoted.  You should explain the context of the detail and how it proves your point. Ex:  	Charlotte explains how her junior high class appreciated Miss Hancock’s teaching when she says, “We were drugged by words . . . .”
