Literary Devices are a tough nut to crack, and one of the big dividing lines in 11+ results is between those that “get it” and those that don’t.
Unlike some questions in the 11+, the raw ability isn’t nearly enough. Kids need to truly engage with the concept of each and every literary device – both what it is, how to spot it, and what it means when you see it in a text.
This means that it is vital for both kids and parents to develop a firm understanding of the devices they will be coming up against. My seminar will help give that understanding a strong and stable foundation, which students can rely upon on the all-important exam day.
The seminar will include:
A detailed explanation of the literary devices seen in the 11+, with short practice exercises to help kids learn to spot them.
A deeper analysis of what each device means, and how to explain that to the examiner.
A list of top tips on how to answer “direct” devices questions, and a list of common mistakes and slip-ups to avoid.
(And, as always, we’ll have a Q&A session at the end to give you all the chance to ask about anything I might have missed!)
