Today we started by finishing taking notes over the lit terms we began last week. During this time I also checked out textbooks to everyone. In case you didn’t get them written down the words that you need to know the definitions for are:

  • Alliteration-
  • Assonance-
  • Metaphor-
  • Simile-
  • Allusion-
  • Exposition-
  • Plot-
  • Theme-
  • Hyperbole-
  • Character-
  • Dynamic character-
  • Static character-
  • Climax-
  • Conflict-
  • Internal conflict-
  • External conflict-
  • Antagonist-
  • Protagonist-
  • Setting-
  • Falling action-
  • Rising action-
  • Drama-
  • Dialect-
  • Flashback-
  • Irony-
  • Satire-
  • Soliloquy-


After finishing the lit terms we spent time coming up with a KWL chart for a New York Times article on the function of one’s brain while reading fiction. We will conclude that discussion tomorrow and then begin looking at poetry.
