Transcript

  • 1. Literary Terms Foreshadowing, Protagonist, Antagonist
  • 2. Foreshadowing
    • Definition: hints or clues that suggest what will happen later in a story
    • Can come in many forms:
      • Setting – The weather or general mood/atmosphere
        • “ There were storm clouds upon the horizon as I walked home from school.”
      • Dialogue – Characters hint at future events
        • Romeo and Juliet say they’d rather die together than live apart from each other. Eventually… they die.
      • Smaller, repetitive events – These may lead to a bigger one
        • The movie Signs shows random little hints that aliens are present.
  • 3. Foreshadowing
    • What happens in Chapter 22 that could foreshadow future events?
    • Page 217: “At that moment Aunt Alexandra came to the door and called us, but she was too late. It was Miss Stephanie’s pleasure to tell us: this morning Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he’d get him if it took the rest of his life.”
  • 4. Protagonist
    • Definition: the main character in literature
    Antagonist
    • Definition: an opposing force or character
  • 5. Journal Prompt
    • Pick one of the following topics and convince me that your belief upon it is the correct one:
      • Capital punishment (death penalty)
      • Gun control
      • Animal rights
      • Immigration
      • Pledge of Allegiance in schools
      • Same-sex marriage
      • Tobacco
    • If you don’t know what issues surround a topic, you probably shouldn’t write about it.
