Can someone please help me with this question?
Write one analogy about "taking an online course" that would be a valid comparison and help someone understand your experience.
Write another analogy that would be an invalid comparison (the comparison would be a "stretch," meaning that the comparison is not at all close enough to be helpful to the other persons understanding).
Write the analogies using the sentence starter below:
Taking an online course is like....
Thanks so much for the help ;-)
One analogy might be that taking an online course is like the old correspondence courses. Taking an online class is like walking alone into a nearly dark room and trying to find small objects.
What do you think an invalid analogy might be?
I know it would be something that's not comparable....such as possibly....
Taking an online course is like taking a bath?
I don't know....these are so confusing to me??????
Taking a bath is as good as any invalid analogy. A bath gets you clean and relaxes you.
