This handy 1-pager helps students understand & recall poetic terms. Students match terms & definitions then classify each term into 1 of 5 groups: Poetic Forms, Rhyme, Sound Devices, Various, and Figurative Language. Students now need to remember just 5 groups of related terms instead of 29 separate items. Classifying encourages students to identify fundamental similarities & meaning relations among like terms. Great for any poetry unit or course!
The handout itself is modern & cutting-edge with design elements suggestive of a poetry magazine; I wanted the handout to be memorable so students are inspired to use it as a reference sheet for the remainder of the unit. Key included. (3 pages; 1 pdf file)
alliteration, allusion, assonance, ballad, catalogue, connotation, consonance, couplet, denotation, end rhyme, enjambment, free verse, hyperbole, iambic, imagery, internal rhyme, lyric, metaphor, meter, metrical foot, motif, narrative, pentameter, Petrarchan sonnet, rhyme, simile, slant rhyme, syntax, tone.
