Mr. Stothers' P7 Class Quiz

Tomorrow's quiz will be on the technical terms for poetry we were looking at today. You should have a copy of these but, in case you don't, here they are again:

Theme: a main idea / a central message
Rhyme: words with the same / similar sound
Simile: an indirect comparison, usually using 'like' or 'as'
Metaphor: a direct comparison, sometimes using 'is'
Personification: describing a thing as if it is human
Word Choice: the vocabulary a poet uses
Structure: the way the poem looks
Symbolism: an object that represents an idea
