Literary devices are the structures used by authors to convey a message. Alliteration is a literary technique used by authors using repeated sounds at the beginning of words in phrases to convey emotions or ideas important to the story.
This unit provides 5 lessons to help teach author's craft through the study of literary devices/techniques using digital interactive notebooks or a composition notebook/graphic organizers (for those without technology).
