Product Description
These were made and used in conjuction with studying Romeo and Juliet. For the essay, students were required to discuss literary devices in R+J. This was a way of teaching them a basic few and getting them to find at least one example from the text. Each card has a definition and an example.

I had the cards printed on coloured paper and cut, separated the students into groups, and they picked a card randomly. Based on which card they had chosen, each group would then have to find at least one example of that device from sections of the text that we had read up until that point. They were required to record examples they found and then report back to the class. I also collected their examples and then made a short collated class list, for students to use as a reference. That collated list is also available for download ('Romeo and Juliet - literary devices).

There are 9 different literary devices covered: simile, metaphor, oxymoron, soliloquy, personification, alliteration, hyperbole, rhyme and repetition.

I found it was a good way to refresh their memories or to teach them some literary devices without overwhelming them in addition to a text they already found difficult!
