Lead students in a powerful discussion and practice on the magical literary element: Imagery! Imagery is the building block for several important literary elements such as symbolism, theme, and mood. Use this hands-on, high interest lesson for showing students why imagery matters!
My 10th grade English 2 students always struggle with imagery questions on the EOC - Imagery to refine a theme, imagery to create a mood, etc. But this simple lesson has raised their scores tremendously! They "get" it now and actually understand why the element is used for a specific effect.
I even use a Mr. Potato head to add a fun, kinesthetic element. You could also print and cut Mr. Potato heads that would work just as well! :)
This Imagery lesson includes:
small flip book (that EASILY fits in student notebooks) for note taking
a poem for practice
a graphic organizer to use with ANY text for continued practice
