Language devices/techniques revision
Activity and resources to revise language devices - could be used before reading section and exploring writers' uses of language features or as part of creative writing and the techniques students can use.
A language device bingo Powerpoint in which the powerpoint rapidly whizzes through lots of examples of language features. Press the 'S' key to stop the PowerPoint at random. Give students copies of the 'VAMPIRES bingo cards' and they then cross off the features as they see them come up (teacher will also need to jot down a record of what has come up to avoid any confusion....or dare I say...cheating!!)
Fully adaptable so you could add in your own examples.
I've also thrown in a language devices cut up and match up activity.
