Product Description
This 10 question quiz provides students with several examples of literary devices from literature-Donne, Keats, Coleridge and other writers who knew how to construct a great metaphor or oxymoron. The most common literary devices are exemplified, such as metaphor, simile, paradox, oxymoron, and allusion. Students read the selections and short prompts to help them focus on the correct part of the text and then they identify the devices employed in the selection. There are also a few examples taken from non-literary sources to provide examples of common rhetorical devices, such as analogy and connotation. This is a straightforward quiz, yet it still gives some extended practice in that the examples are not simply one-line phrases. Rather, students are working with enough text for the phrase with the literary device to have some meaning and some context. This quiz is originally designed to complement the "Literary Terms Concentration Game" on PowerPoint that is also available in my TpT store. It can easily be used on its own, or it works nicely as a wrap-up activity for that game. If you are interested in the game which accompanies this quiz, visit my store at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/nico . The quiz is included as part of the game package.
