Using analogies as an instructional tool can be very effective for teachers to relay content, make abstract concepts more concrete, and help student learn processes and procedures. When educators rely on the analogies and fail to reinforce the academic language and depth of knowledge required, the instructional effectiveness suffers. This presentation outlines ways to coach educator prep students to use analogies effectively while ensuring that academic language, content depth and critical thinking are addressed.
