This Literary Terms Guide is a resource middle and high school students can use in and outside the classroom to help them understand literature. I created this alphabetized guide to help my students comprehend the terms before, during, and after reading. This guide can be used in a variety of ways e.g. students can create games using the terms or flashcards with illustrations to help them remember the terms. They can also create a "rap" using all of the literary terms in this 10 page dictionary. It is a quick way for students to understand literature without looking up the words on the Internet or in a dictionary.
