This Literary Terms Booklet is the perfect way for your middle school students to keep track of the various terms and definitions they will learn in literature! Includes 37 literary terms, definitions, and examples from literature (literary terms listed below). Please read below to see exactly what is included and the various ways you can use this in your classroom!
There are many different ways you can use this resource in your classroom, as we’ve included three formats for you to choose from. Each of the three formats comes with cursive headings as well as non-cursive headings – these are labeled as such in the resource.
Each version of the booklet includes a space for the definition, an illustration or symbol (to help students remember / make a personal association), and an example from literature.
Option 1: Completely Blank Templates
This gives you the option to have your students fill in the definitions of each literary term as they are taught throughout the school year.
Option 2: Only Definitions
This allows you to print out all of the literary terms with the definitions included, but students can fill out their own examples from literature.
Option 3: Definitions and Examples
All definitions and examples are included, but the illustration or symbol section is still left blank for students to complete.
We have also included six covers to choose from, so you can pick what you like best!
In the EDITABLE version of the template, the font is Century Gothic for all sections of the booklet. You must have PowerPoint in order to open and edit the editable version of this resource!
