Teach students to use allusions effectively in their writing--and let them have a little fun too!
I created these challenges when I realized that my students -- who could parrot back the definition of allusion, and even identify it in their texts -- could not easily use it in their writing. The challenge is designed to give them practice with the process required to create an effective sentence that uses an allusion which, in turn, will help them better understand it in the texts they read.
First, there is a slideshow that reviews the concept of allusion. Next, you will find five different options for challenging your students to use allusions. Students can do the process alone or in pairs.
The word strips and student handouts are completely editable, so you can tweak them to meet the needs or your class.
I also have The Metaphor Challenge
, The Personification Challenge
, The Idiom-Imagery Challenge
and The Hyperbole Challenge.
