This delightful goat was spotted grazing happily in an open field. As it turns out, he makes the perfect subject for demonstrating the significance of stressed and unstressed syllables!
The text example on the poster has helped my middle-school students understand (and hear) accents—the stressed and unstressed syllables. It works particularly well with iambic pentameter, but it can also be used to demonstrate the significance of accents in any vocabulary word pronunciation.
The poster serves as a great visual for our Sonnet Lesson Plan
. There is a smaller version included in the sonnet lesson plan, but this one prints out beautifully in a 20” x 30” size. The poster shown in the thumbnail photo is printed on photo poster board. We uploaded the file and picked it up at the store an hour later! (Kinkos, FedEx, and numerous online sites offer easy printing.) This download is a PDF, but feel free to contact us if the printer you use requires a different format.
Thanks for visiting our store!
