The California State High School Exit Exam has a multiple choice element as well as a writing section. Many other states have similar exams. When English Language Learners sometimes ask me, “Why do we have to learn this?” I hate very occasionally having to respond, “Because it might be on the test.” Learning how to write a response to literature, and knowing the words describing literary elements, is one of those times.
Glencoe has an audio (and sometimes animated) glossary called the Interactive Literary Elements Handbook that could be helpful to English Language Learners trying to learn about writing a response to literature.
They also have a Name That Literary Element game, which, if you have to play a game to learn literary elements, isn’t that bad.
