Language Arts Lesson - "Poetic Devices: How a Poem Sounds"

"Poetic Devices: How a Poem Sounds"

by Dianne Mason
9th-12th Grade

April is National Poetry Month. Give your students a solid foundation in the ways a poet uses sound to enhance meaning with the activities in this lesson. The editable Power Point presentation provides definitions and examples of poetic devices such as alliteration, enjambment, onomatopoeia, free verse and many others. Fun-filled activities give students practice in recognizing the poetic devices presented and allows them to try their hands at writing poems using those devices. Included is a worksheet with answer key that could be used as a quiz instead. Have fun, Dianne.
