Activity Overview


When teaching poetry, it is often helpful to refresh or introduce students with technical words. Terms like metaphor, simile, stanza, alliteration, personification, rhyme scheme, and onomatopoeia are a few important terms.

In this activity, students can create a storyboard that depicts and explains the use of each literary element that they can find in the poem. You may chose to focus on one element at a time, or if the students are advanced, you can focus on many.

Here is an example of six literary elements found in “Your World”:


Alliteration

  • Repetition of a sound
  • Example: “narrowest nest”

Assonance

  • The repetition of a vowel sound
  • Example: Open "O" words ("corner", "horizon", "cordons", "soared")
    These sounds create a soaring, flying effect for the reader.

Metaphor

  • A comparison, or association, without using 'like' or ‘as’
  • Example: Bird = Person
    "My wings pressing close to my side."
    "And cradled my wings on the breeze”

Simile

  • A comparison using 'like' or 'as'
  • Example: “Your world is as big as you make it”

Imagery

  • Visually descriptive or figurative language
  • Example: “I throbbed with a burning desire”

Apostrophe

  • Poet addresses an absent person, an abstract idea, or a thing
  • Example: “Your world is as big as you make it”
