Teaching With A Metaphor

a: Teaching with a metaphor ~
b: eating a fudgy oatmeal cookie

What: Teaching with a metaphor is like a fudgy oatmeal cookie. The cookie itself should be enough and enjoyable on its own. The chocolate allows the student to hold it in their mouth and chew on it a bit longer.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
