Brookwood Metaphors

In English class, Brookwood students have been learning about metaphors, and they recently crafted their own to convey what it means to be from this part of the world. Here are a handful of those metaphors, presented without any explanation. We wonder if BGA students have any reaction to them– curiosity about what’s behind one of them, an interpretation of the metaphor, whatever…

Snow days are like sea glass on a beach.

The climate is like a teenager’s emotions.

Drivers are like cannonballs.

The people are like Sour Patch Kids.

The winters are like math class.

Yankees fans are like a swimsuit in winter.

Sports are like shoe brands on Zappos.




We haven’t had much snow this winter, so we’re all psyched! These are two of the three sections of Brookwood students contributing to this blog.

Welcome, BGA, Advent, and Brookwood Students!

This is year number three of a really cool collaboration between students from BGA (in Tennessee) and Brookwood (in Massachusetts), and we’re thrilled this year to meet students from Advent Episcopal School in Birmingham, Alabama. It’s our hope that the dialog fostered on this blog will help us all broaden our worldview just a bit.
