Did you enjoy a YouTube video that illustrated a point in class? It'll be shared here to help you review!



Alliteration is the repetition of sounds in words that are close together. Watch Johnny Carson and Jack Webb have fun with alliteration in this clip from 1968: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKGtb1t9iVw


Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds at the beginning, middle, or end of words. For example, this song from My Fair Lady repeats the same sound in the middle of words. "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVmU3iANbgk


Assonance is also heard in this song from Singin' in the Rain. "Moses supposes his toeses are roses..." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKlub5vB9z8


This song will teach you the Elements of a Story.

There isn't much real Irony in Alanis Morissette's "Ironic", is there? Can you fix the lyrics for her? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jne9t8sHpUc


Irony is finally found in this video that fixes Alanis Morissette's lyrics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32LCwZFoKio



Prepositions can be easily remembered with this song to the tune of "Yankee Doodle Dandy."


Lady Gaga can teach us about Prepositions, too!


Teach Me Prepositions is a great parody of Teach Me How to Dougie.


Can you find all six of the elements of plot in the short film "Alma"?


Can you do the same for "Presto"?
