Imagery Day 2 Imagery Day 2 Presentation Transcript

  • Imagery Using the five senses to write
  • Imagery • The use of language to generate ideas and/or evoke mental images • Not only of the visual sense, but of sensation and emotion as well • ImageryImagery in writing creates images or helps you to imagine something.
  • Examples of imagery • Sight: Smoke mysteriously puffed out from the clown’s ears. • Sound: Tom placed his ear tightly against the wall; he could hear a faint but distinct thump thump thump. • Touch: The burlap wall covering scraped against the little boy’s cheek. • Taste: A salty tear ran across onto her lips. • Smell: Cinnamon! That’s what wafted into his nostrils.
  • Creating Imagery • Write your own example of imagery for each of the five senses Sight – Sound – Touch – Taste – Smell –
  • Creating imagery • Prewrite- come up with the name of a person, animal, monster, alien, or other being to be a character in a poem. • Visualize your character with all five senses.
  • Creating poetry • Use the examples you already came up with, OR write brand new lines and make up a poem about this character . • You should have each of the 5 senses described at least once. • Since we are going to illustrate the poem, use at least 5 visual images as well. • Your poem should be at least 12 lines and divided into 3 stanzas. • Write you NAME on the BACK of your poem
  • Creating images • Now that you are finished, turn in your poem to the teacher. We are going to switch papers with a classmate now. • Read the poem written by your classmate. • Now use the art materials to draw the character described in the poem. • Be creative when illustrating smell and taste… maybe your character could be saying “Yuck!” or “Yum!” in a comic book bubble for example.
  • Conclusion • Illustrators: meet with your counterpart and share why you drew the character the way you did. • Poets: tell your counterpart how the character looked different (and similar) in your mind.
