Poem and Rhetorical Devices Analysis Worksheet (Advanced Level)

Poem and Rhetorical Devices Analysis Worksheet (Advanced Level)

This worksheet should be used as a practice learning tool after teaching how to analyze a poem, the purpose of figurative language, and be able to locate and explain the function of rhetorical devices. Students should understand paradox, anaphora, antithesis, euphemism ( advanced level), POV, purpose and audience. Learning strands:  Analysing Texts 1.6 analyse texts in terms of the information, ideas, issues, or themes they explore, examining how various aspects of the texts contribute to the presentation or development of these elements (e.g., determine whether repeated sounds, words, or phrases in a poem reinforce its theme; determine how a story might change if it were narrated by one of the other characters in the story; determine how altering the punctuation could affect the message of an advertisement)  Elements of Style 2.3 identify several different elements of style in texts and explain how they help communicate meaning and enhance the effectiveness of the text (e.g., evocative language may be used to create a particular mood in a novel; incongruous words and phrases may be used to create a humorous effect in a short story; a repeated phrase in a song lyric helps to emphasize the theme; the use of words with several connotations can add extra levels of meaning in a poem; alliteration in a magazine or online advertising slogan can help make readers remember the slogan – and the product) Teacher prompt: “What is the effect or mood created by this passage? What words contribute to that effect? Would the effect be enhanced or diminished if different words were used?”
