An analogy is a comparison between two things. It points out the similarities or likenesses between things that might be different in all other respects. These exercises not only build thinking skills and make students more flexible and analytical; they also enhance vocabulary and writing skills.

Intermediate students will get a jump on thinking skills and test taking strategies with these sure-to-please exercises. Whether this book is their first encounter with analogies or whether they are veterans with a great deal of experience, Thinking Through Analogies gives them the tools they need in a fun-to-use format. It provides thinking strategies to help recognize the unique relationships between paired items and how these relationships can be replicated. Each lesson introduces new types of analogies, gives examples, and offers hints on solving the analogies. Vocabulary reflects today's culture, and helpful hints help students to build skills that will allow them to perform better on tests.

These challenging activities are perfect for teaching analytical thinking, enhancing vocabulary, and improving writing skills.

Other titles in this series are First Time Analogies, Analogies for Beginners, Analogies for the 21st Century and Advancing Through Analogies.
