Literary Devices Review (and Pop Quiz) Day: Monday, November 3rd, 2014

Leverage Television Show

After touching on the subject of literary devices last week, we reviewed them further.  First, the students watched a short clip (the last 6 minutes) of Episode 9 from Season 2 of the show “Leverage.”  This episode, entitled “The Lost Heir Job,” wrapped up the various plot threads in a courtroom scene.  Through this scene, the students were able to identify flashback, foreshadowing, deus ex machina, hyperbole,and figurative language. Thereafter, we took a moment to play some games to aid in the review process.  The students and I had a brief Q & A session with me to fill in any other questions they might have had about any of the literary devices on the quiz.
