Figurative Language in Popular Song Lyrics

Figurative Language in Popular Song Lyrics

(0)
A 20 slide powerpoint presentation with examples of figurative language in lyrics from popular songs with an appropriate accompanying image. Includes simile, metaphor, personification, alliteration, senses, imagery, idiom, hyperbole, anaphora and rule of three. I print these on A3 and use this as a display in my classroom, but it could also be used to introduce these concepts to a class within a wider lesson about literary devices. I find that my classes find the examples easier to remember when they are from popular songs.
NEW (9-1) Edexcel IGCSE English Language A Exam Practice

NEW (9-1) Edexcel IGCSE English Language A Exam Practice

(1)
This is 2-3 lessons worth of work, guiding pupils through Section A of the new spec. IGCSE (Edexcel) English Language A Paper. Due to the lack of practice papers for the new IGCSE specification, I have created this to give my class some exam practice. The resource includes an exam paper in the style of the iGCSE English Language A specification (Section A only). It uses a newspaper article as the unseen non-fiction extract. (I have only included 500 words of the newspaper article, due to copyright, but have cited the link so you can see the full piece.) The anthology piece you will need is 'A Passage to Africa' from the IGCSE anthology. The accompanying ppt. presentation guides pupils through the exam paper and offers example responses.

Creative Writing inspired by WW1 Poetry - Unit of Work

This scheme of work guides pupils through 'Exposure,' 'Dulce et Decorum Est,' and 'Who's for the Game?' and then uses this context to inspire a piece of creative writing about going over the top in the trenches. The presentation takes pupils through the writing paragraph by paragraph and suggests techniques they can use at each stage. I used it with mid/low ability year 9 pupils. There are bits and pieces taken from others' resources here as well as my own work.
