In "Essential Literary Terms to Know" students are required to take notes on thirteen literary terms as they are presented, explained and more fully developed in an easily accessible and authoritative website. The terms include the following: metaphor, simile,
analogy, hyperbole, allusion, euphemism, paradox, oxymoron, satire, onomatopoeia, alliteration, allegory, and irony. The website’s “list format” makes it very approachable for most students. This activity has proven to be a useful tool in the writing of essays, exams, projects, reports, quizzes, and tests.
