LANGUAGE TECHNIQUES & DEVICES: definitions and purpose

(0)
This is my favourite resource! I use this resource with all of my students and it really works! In no time, all of my students know all 14 + language devices off by heart and can comment on their purpose and effect. I don't want to teach you how to suck eggs but this is how I use them. Cut and Stick activity. Acronym: MATE PROOFREADS! 1. Fold and glue along the heading the tabs 2. Match with the definitions and the purpose & effects - stick these underneath each tab. Valuable tool to use in the classroom to teach the techniques, use as a revision tool and/or use as a checklist for creative writing. BELIEVE ME, IT WORKS!

AQA LIT GAME - Romeo & Juliet/ Christmas Carol/ Inspector Calls/ Poetry: Power&Conflict

(0)
A great resource to encourage students to revise through game play. Highly challenging and competitive. Students soon forget that they are even revising. 64 cards - Key quotes, Themes and Techniques for: Romeo & Juliet A Christmas Carol An Inspector Calls Poetry: Power and Conflict The multi-coloured board game and the rules are included too. This game is very versatile and that is why I have left some aspects of the rules up to you. What may work with one group, may not work with another. How I play: Start in the middle and work your way around the board with each role of the dice. The group that land on the category picks a representative who has to: -draw -articulate -act - guess (speaker/ poem etc) something that is similar to the point on the card. The rest of the team need to guess within the time allotted. If the group fail to guess, then they need to move their counter back to where they came from. Happy playing (I mean - REVISING!)

EDEXCEL poetry - CONFLICT - Dominoes, Pairs or Rummy!

(0)
This activity is working really well with my students. Divide the poems and themes up between players and they need to connect them all. E.g. Dominoes - alternate poem with theme. When connection is being made they must select a quote that supports their match. Extend task for higher ability, as they should be commenting on language techniques and effect on the reader. Happy gaming!
