If there is one part of the English curriculum that most children struggle with, it’s poetry. There are so many varieties of expression, poetry terms and techniques that it can often baffle children. Learning to use poetic techniques and applying poetry terminology like ‘juxtaposition’ and ‘caesura’, for example, will hugely positively impact students’ grades.
The Geek School Poetry Glossary will help to simplify and demystify the different poetry terms and techniques for all students, regardless of their level and English ability.
Knowing poetry terminology helps students at Key Stage 3 level, right through to GCSE, to write comparative poetry essays and use the terminology to make persuasive arguments and emphasise their points.
One of the essential requirements for getting high grades when answering poetry anthology questions is demonstrating knowledge of poetry terms.
Do you know what a rhyming couplet, enjambment, or parody is? These are just a few of the terms explained in the Geek School Poetry Glossary.
The Geek School Poetry Glossary also explains how to answer poetry questions effectively.
This Poetry Glossary can be used by students preparing for AQA, Edexcel, OCR and any other exam boards for English language and English literature GCSEs.
