There are a lot of online resources out there that focus on defining the sound device of alliteration in poetry and providing (often) silly tongue-twister examples. This PowerPoint Presentation goes a little deeper and helps get to the deeper questions. Why do poets use it? What is the purpose? How can an alliterative line in a poem be an effective device to create mood or evoke a deeper understanding of what is being said? This presentation will helpfully get the conversation started in your classroom.
