This was a lesson designed by one of the English teachers at my school. She often tries to incorporate some type of 'creative' project in her lessons, which is fantastic as many of the students (Grade 7,8) are super creative and talented.
Each student chose a literary device which they had to define and illustrate. Literary devices are specific language techniques which writers use to create text that is clear, interesting, and memorable. These are all done on 8 x 11" copy paper and the media mainly used was markers and pencil crayons.
I love it when other subject teachers (especially at the junior high and high school level) incorporate art into their lessons as then I can see if the skills and techniques I teach them are transferable to other subjects; if they can actually remember and use the types of things I teach them.
