Literature Part II

This unit details specific aspects, or "thematic elements" of literature. Moreover, this unit provides the necessary tools for an intertwinement of activity worksheets, textual examples to reinforce the thematic elements being reviewed, as well as conceptual definitions of elements such as "mood," "foreshadowing," "diction," "imagery," "allegory," etc. Additionally, this unit introduces vocabulary-building words (drawn from specific excerpts/texts) for the students to define independently and, ultimately, memorize. Lastly, this unit also provides reading tools for the necessary deconstruction of texts.
