ASSONANCE: the repetition of vowel sounds in two or more words that appear close to each other, while not repeating the surrounding consonants
This is a complete lesson about assonance. The definition of the term is followed by a discussion using excellent examples in prose and poetry. Activity sheets provide questions that promote and ensure understanding, and a writing exercise that provides an opportunity for application.
Includes a teacher guide that discusses literary terms, suggests a lesson cycle, provides NCTE/IRA standards, and includes an answer key.
Assonance is excerpted from THE LITERARY TERMS HANDBOOK.
