We take alliteration from a silly writing tool so something a bit more *sophisticated* and introduce its elder sibling, consonance.

This lesson includes 2 videos for students to work through independently.

When students learn about alliteration, it's hard to steer them away from goofy tongue-twisters. Certainly, there must be more powerful and practical ways of using alliteration. In this lesson, I draw on delicious examples from Shakespeare to show how a very advanced writer used alliteration. Then, I break those ideas down so students can try them out.

The registration window closes on April 30th
