An unexpected pleasure to supplement our English curriculum Figuratively Speaking: Using Classic Literature to Teach Literary Terms turned out to be a nice change of pace for my children Clear concise definitions of each term plus examples from classic poetry and prose made them easy to understand A variety of short exercises such as identifying genres understanding irony developing a plot using dialogue were provided to clarify each concept Then the students were given writing assignments and reading tips to demonstrate an understanding of each term in the context of their own creative workThe exercises are adaptable to a wide variety of ages especially if your children haven't been exposed to these concepts before The creative assignments were fun and challenging Figuratively Speaking was a pleasant surprise to use and very easy to implement in our homeschool!

This is a great book that I have used in the past which helps introduce students to literary devices. The language is appropriate for intermediate students. To reinforce each concept, there are appropriate worksheets to supplement the lesson.

Seems to be a thorough overview of terms and concepts, for a child who doesn't care to write "too much".
ANDREA K on Sep 12, 2016
This looks like a great way to teach literary elements before applying them to actual books.

It fits with what we're doing for Language Arts for our 6th grader.

The table of contents seemed to cover the subject well and the review left by a customer was favorable as well as informative. I am willing to take a chance on this not knowing much about it since it will be a supplement to the language arts we will be doing.
