Product Description
Figurative language and literary devices: What are they for? Why do authors use them? Students need to be aware of the WHY and this page will help them do just that!!
Students will fill in a list of definitions provided by the teacher for: figurative language, literary devices, sensory details, mental images, and mood. Then, students will read a text of the teacher's/student's choice. Students will record a figure of speech and/or literary device from the text, record its meaning, what sensory detail it included, and what mental image it was related to, including how it effected the mood of the story.
For example, "The angry, swirling clouds...." is an example of personification that is related to the sense of sight, which helps the reader create a mental image of the setting; weather can often help create a creepy or sad mood, and it can have an effect on a character.
