This booklet is a fantastic way to introduce poetic conventions at the beginning of a learning program or at the end for revision.
This resource breaks down the different conventions, giving students a definition, examples and most importantly and explanation on why a text creator would use them. Conventions are broken down in the following order:
The sound of words
The meaning of words
The arranging of words
- point of view
This can be paired with a fishbone activity, students taking notes themselves or even students making a pamphlet/brochure or informational poster. This resource is complimented by the PowerPoint presentation on this site as well.
