This resource is a literary device assessment that could be used as an exit slip, as a quiz, as a test, etc. It covers the following words: bias, euphemism, allusion, stereotype, pun, foreshadow, flashback, irony, oxymoron, imagery, understatement, and paradox. Below you will find how I incorporated this into my 5th grade reading class.
Students started this activity by choosing one of the following literary device word sets.
A: bias, euphemism, allusion
B: stereotype, pun, foreshadow, flashback
C: irony, oxymoron, imagery
D: understatement, paradox, bias (repeated)
After choosing a word set, students worked with a group to research the literary devices and create a presentation about the words. I had all the Group A students present. While students presented, the other students recorded notes. After all groups were done, we discussed the words to make sure students understood. Then, they completed the corresponding section of the assessment. The next day, the next group presented and the cycle repeated. My students really enjoyed learning about the literary devices, teaching each other in their jigsaw groups, and I was impressed by how many new literary devices they learned quickly!
