Comprehension Strategy:
Alliteration/Assonance
-Alliteration: Repetition of a particular consonant
sound at the beginning of words near one another.
- Assonance: Repeating a certain vowel sound within a
group of words.
-Alliteration and assonance give emphasis to words
poets want readers to notice.
-There are emotional and musical qualities that
repeated sounds create often suggesting something
important about the poem's speaker or its theme.
- For extra practice, refer to Practice Workbook page

Genre: Poetry
The following are key characteristics of free-verse and
narrative poetry:
-Written without a traditional rhyme scheme
or meter. Often uses the varied rhythms of
everyday speech.
-May include patterns of sound, such as
alliteration or assonance, to create an effect.
Often uses figurative and descriptive language
to create imaginative comparisons and vivid
images.
- Narrative poetry tells a story. Includes story
elements such as character, setting, and plot
to tell about a problem and its resolution.

195. Also refer to The RWW book page 298.

Vocabulary Strategy: Figurative


Language
-Figurative language is when words and phrases have
meaning apart from the literal meanings of the words.
-Idiomatic expression is where a phrase cannot be
understood by the meaning of the individual words.
-Example: I've made a beeline for the bus, other kids,
eager to leave, hustle and rush. Meaning: Walk
quickly/directly Context clue= Hustle and rush

Study Center.

Comprehension Skill: Point of View


-In fiction, a narrator tells the story.
-The narrator's relationship to the story determines the story's point of
view.
-In poetry the narrator is known as the speaker.
-You should identify the speaker in a narrative poem. Ask: Is the speaker
a character in the poem? Does he or she participate in the events? Do
readers k now what he or she thinks and feels? If so, the poem has a
first-person point of view.
-Words to look for to identify first person point of view: I, me, my, and
mine.
