Devices, Devices, Devices


For the Words, Words, Words common assessment there are several poetical devices we need to know in order to meet the standards of the assessment. Plus, these are devices that are used in other genres of writing that we'll be talking about later in the year. They are:

Dialect
Diction
Imagery
Metaphor
Simile
Rhyme
Repetition

Also, there are a few key need-to-know terms that I'll be using throughout your time with me. They are:

Line
Speaker
Stanza
Theme

If you missed these notes or need additional enlightenment as to what they mean, please feel free to see me.
