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.

Poetry from other Cultures  - Unit of Work

Poetry from other Cultures - Unit of Work

(0)
This unit of work takes pupils through 'White Comedy', 'I too Sing, America,' 'Blessing' and 'Island Man.' It helps pupils to analyse each poem and guides them through a comparison. It has bits and pieces taken from others' resources that I have adapted, as well as my own work. I have successfully taught this to high ability year 8 and low ability year 9. For differentiation, I include a scaffolded essay plan, which has helped some of my SEN/EAL pupils. Parts of this are inspired by Phil Beadle's amazing work on 'Island Man' and 'Blessing' (Teachers TV). I really enjoy teaching this unit of work, I hope that others find it useful.
