Close Reading: Put the following terms on the board. In groups of 3-4, students are assigned a term and are responsible for teaching it to the class. Groups must create a user-friendly definition and an example. In addition, they must show an extensive analysis of their own example, discussing how it is effective at achieving its purpose. Therefore, they must ask themselves, ‘What is its purpose?’ Terms: Simile, Metaphor, Personification, Alliteration, Imagery, Tone, Sentence Structure, Word Choice. Other students must copy the term, definition, example, and analysis in their jotters, after the teacher goes over it on the board. Remind students that in Close Reading questions that ask how a writer achieves something, that the term and example must be present for full marks. For example: “How does the author make Mrs Moonface’s behaviour seem threatening?” –in the answer, they are looking not only for the example of a simile, but of the term as well.
