To understand rhyme in poetry

Activity 1:

To understand rhyme in poetry

[lo 3.2.1]

In this exercise, we are not only going to test your knowledge of rhyming words , but we are also going to see how quickly you can identify the rhyming words. This is a wonderful poem about a whale but you need to complete it by filling the words below into the correct spaces. Your educator will tell you when to begin and when to stop.

Good luck!

whale, tale, female, stale, dame, blame, sage, rage, grade, parade, fade, Jade, lake, take, gape, shape, stare, rare, cave, wave, gaze, daze, male, gale

Assessment

LO 3
READING AND VIEWING The learner will be able to read and view for information and enjoyment, and to respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.
3.3 reads for information:
3.3.2 scans graphs, timetables, etc. for specific information;
3.3.3 summarises a paragraph (e.g. identifies the main point and the topic sentence);
3.7 reads for pleasure:
3.7.5 solves word puzzles.

Memorandum

Rhyming words are the focus of the following activity. Learners are required to complete a poem by filling the words that are missing. As an added challenge, the exercise must be timed to assess how quickly the learners can identify the words. Learners with a good understanding of rhyming words will be able to complete the entire poem in the allotted time. Learners who are battling with the concept of rhyming words will not be able to find the correct words and will therefore not complete the poem in the allotted time. The Assessment Chart at the end of the activity will also help you with the assessment.

Before allowing learners to start the activity, discuss rhyming words with them. Ask them to give you some examples of words that rhyme. Once you are happy that you have revised this concept, let them start the activity with a time limit. (no more than 5 minutes.) After the allotted time, take their workbooks in for marking. Once the books have been marked, it is important that they complete the activity. Allow more time for this. Learners may now work in partners and compare answers so that those who need a bit more time to consolidate the concept may learn from their peers.

The poem should be completed as follows:

I'd like to tell you now the TALE ,

Of Willowby, the lovesick WHALE,

Who felt his life was getting STALE ,

For want of his own young WHALE ,

There wasn't anyone to BLAME ,

That he could never find a DAME ,

He didn't fly into a RAGE ,

Instead, he sought the ocean SAGE ,

Who organised a whale PARADE ,

To see if Willowby made the GRADE ,

With a lovely lady whale called JADE ,

Whose beauty wouldn't ever FADE ,

The route the whale parade would TAKE ,

Would pass up through a deep sea LAKE ,

The sage was sure Jade's lovely SHAPE ,

Would make young Willowby's whale mouth GAPE ,

And sure enough, her beauty RARE ,

Made Willowby both stop and STARE ,

He flipped for joy and made a WAVE ,

And took Jade with him to his CAVE ,

And swam about in happy DAZE ,

His dear Jade never left his GAZE ,

In calmest days or in a GALE ,

Of whales, he was the happiest MALE .

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world

I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
