Being able to identify figures of speech and writing techniques is important in close reading, but students rarely study and practice techniques in isolation. This series of printable task sheets gives senior students and gifted/talented students practice in some of the major figures of speech and writing techniques. Each number in the Writing Techniques Series can be used as a stand-alone lesson, or as part of a term-long study in writing style. The task sheets comprise:

  • An explanation of the technique
  • A substantial original example for study
  • 5+ fun creative tasks which accustom students to using the figure
  • 5+ analytical tasks which ask students to write critically about the technique in literature
  • A selected list of examples which teachers and students can use to broaden their knowledge of how great literature has used the technique
