Product Description
An essential understanding of an author’s use of literary devices enhances reading comprehension. The many components included under the umbrella of literary devices form one of the centerpieces of Common Core curriculum and are the basis of frequent test items on summative end-of-year assessments. Elements included in this crossword puzzle are: Alliteration, Characterization, Dialect, Flashback, Foreshadowing, Hyperbole, Imagery, Irony, Metaphor, Omniscient, Onomatopoeia, Personification, Simile, Suspense, and Symbol. This engaging activity can be used as either an initial formative assessment of students’ understanding of these elements or as a component of a more formal assessment after teaching. The activity includes the puzzle (with a separate word bank for scaffolding), an answer key, and a handout with terms and definitions. Have fun!
