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 how to apply poetry terminology like ‘juxtaposition’, ‘caesura’ for example will have a hugely positive impact on 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 the way through to GCSE to write comparative poetry essays and use the terminology to make persuasive arguments and emphasis their points.
One of the essential requirements for getting high grades when answering poetry anthology questions is the ability to demonstrate knowledge of poetry terms.
Do you know what a rhyming couplet is; or enjambment; or a parody? These are just a few of the terms that are 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 who are preparing for AQA, Edexcel, OCR and any other exam boards for English language and English literature GCSEs.
