Description

So you know you need to teach literary terms with Romeo and Juliet, but where do you start? It can be time-consuming and just plain overwhelming to sit down with one of the Bard's plays and try to analyze each line for literary devices. Have no fear!
I have been working on a list of literary terms that can be applied to the play for ten years, and this product encompasses 49 different poetic and figurative language terms. You can introduce as many or as few literary terms to your students as you want.

This product has recently been updated and contains several different files. First, you'll see a PDF PPT and note set, which is a massive collection of literary terms, definitions, and non-play examples for each act. I use it with my students by covering each act's terms before reading that act. This way, it is less daunting for my students and for myself! Using non-play examples helps to open their eyes to what the term means without the confusing blank verse. The terms are organized by prologue and each act (I introduce more terms at the front of the unit, and add a few extra with each act. This allows students repetition without completely overwhelming them.)

My students already have a pretty good understanding with some of the literary terms in this Romeo and Juliet presentation (like simile, personification), some they have heard of but have not mastered (like dramatic irony and paradox), and others are completely new and are just meant to be introduced at the freshman level (like apostrophe and enjambment). Whatever your needs, this Romeo and Juliet literary terms visual presentation is engaging (with pictures, humorous examples, and links to video examples), thorough, and accurate.

Just added to this bundle are two additional resources: 5 literary terms identification practice worksheets (which contain 8 examples of the terms from the play's script with word banks for answer choices) and 20 task cards for students to get additional exposure to the Bard's use of the devices - both in PDF format.

I highly recommend purchasing the literary terms Get Schooled! game to use throughout your Romeo and Juliet unit. It utilizes most of the terms in this presentation and note set, and it's a fun student-led activity!
