booksInter-Regional Seminar on Teaching and Testing Reading:
Metaphors by teachers at the workshops

Tunisia, February 2006

Compiled by Deborah Healey, Ph.D.

From Bizerte:

Traveling to explore the world - as inspiring as nature

Like diving - the further you go, the more you know

Like sailing in a rough sea where the sailor meets obstacles and has to find the appropriate way to overcome them

Like putting a child to bed, putting the covers over him and not under him

Seeing the forest as well as the trees

A delicious meal - food for thought

Like a pregnant woman - you don't quite know what you'll get

A picnic in the classroom
