Extended Metaphors

Lion and Jackal Group Work

Work Time

Join a small group as directed and view images and discussions of jackals and lions. After discussing your findings with the whole class, do the following.

  • With your group, fill out the form for Stryver and for Carton.
  • Identify qualities of the animals in the left column and qualities of the characters in the middle column.
  • Get at least three short quotations—three for each character—that show the metaphors at work. Put those in the last column.

When it is your turn, share with the whole class what your group has noticed about the jackal and lion metaphors.
