Literary Devices: Simile, Metaphor, Hyperbole, Personification, Synecdoche, Imagery
This package introduces six of the most common Literary Devices. Resources are designed to help students learn and retain information so that they can: 1) identify these devices in their readings; 2) incorporate these devices into their writings; and 3) understand the significance of these devices and how they impact texts and stories.
Included in this FREE package:
-PowerPoint presentation (terms, definitions, & examples)
-YouTube Video (click icon on title page of PowerPoint)
-Graphic Organizer (takes notes for PowerPoint)
-Definition matching exercise
-Example sentences matching exercise
-Answer Key for all assignments
The PowerPoint can be taught by the teacher, or presented via YouTube. The former allows for additional examples, appropriate pacing, and adding or skipping content as needed. The latter allows teachers to walk the room, assist specific students, or given to students for review.
Graphic organizer. Keep students engaged during the lecture or YouTube video by providing an intuitive format for notes. Students may keep their notes, which are designed to assist in the following activities.
Definition matching. Students will connect each literary device to its corresponding definition. This activity can be used as a formative assessment during class, or as an exit ticket.
Example matching. Twelve example sentences are given and students must pair those examples to the correct terms. This activity can be done individually or in small groups (2-3 students suggested). Conversely, these examples can be incorporated into an assessment.
Answer Keys are provided for the graphic organizer, definition matching, and example matching.
