Putting Pizzazz in Poetry
Introduction: Now that we have studied various Literary Elements used in poetry, here are some questions to consider:
How do literary elements contribute to meaning in poetry?
How does the use of onomatopoeia affect poetry?
How does the use of simile affect poetry?
How does the use of alliteration affect poetry?
How does the use of personification affect poetry?
Task: Working in teams of two, use the links to review what you learned about Simile, Onomatopoeia, Personification, and Alliteration as well as to identify examples of these Literary Elements. Prepare a presentation project and report back to the class. Choose one of the following formats for your presentation:
Powerful Poetry (PowerPoint Show)
Powerful Poetry (Publisher Brochure)
Powerful Poetry (Publisher Web Site)
Information Sources: These are links to that will help you create your presentation.
Process: Follow these steps to complete your project.
Guidance: Here are some questions to think about as you work on your project.
Conclusion: Discuss the following questions with your teammate after you finish the project. Be prepared to discuss them with Mrs. Pérez.
