  5. 5. Sequence of Events:<br />This is the plot of the story and it usually involves a conflict.<br />Think of it as a timeline with certain events in the story happening at certain points on the timeline.<br />
  6. 6. Rhyme Scheme:<br />A poem's rhyme scheme is the name given to the pattern of rhymes made by the final words or sounds in the lines of a poem.<br />When identifying the rhyme scheme of a poem, one typically designates a different letter of the alphabet to represent each rhyme. If a poet ends the first four lines with the words "cat," "hat," "car," and "star," the rhyme scheme for those first four lines would be AABB. The A rhymes are "cat" and "hat," and the B rhymes are "car" and "star." <br />
  7. 7. Rhyme Scheme (con’t.):<br />To determine the rhyme scheme of a poem, look at the last word of each line. The word or sound at the end of the first line is A. Any other lines that end with a word or sound that rhymes is also A. The next new rhyme is B, and so on.<br />
  8. 8. Rhyme Scheme – Example:<br />GLEE! The great storm is over!<br />Four have recovered the land;<br />Forty gone down together<br />Into the boiling sand.<br />What is the rhyme scheme?<br />Answer: ABCB<br />
  9. 9. Rhyme Scheme – Another Example:<br />I know that I shall meet my fate<br />Somewhere among the clouds above;<br />Those that I fight I do not hate<br />Those that I guard I do not love;<br />What is the rhyme scheme?<br />Answer: ABAB<br />
  10. 10. Alliteration<br />Alliteration is the use of words with the same or similar beginning sounds.<br />Alliteration affects how a poem sounds when it is read aloud.<br />Where is the alliteration in the following line?<br />Onto the sandy shores the stormy sea sent its waves.<br />Answer: It is the “s” sound.<br />
  11. 11. Mood & Tone<br />Mood is the emotions or feelings that are conveyed in a work.<br />The mood in a poem about a birthday party is likely to be festive.<br />Tone is the writer’s attitude toward the topic or subject.<br />Example of tone: If a writer was describing a battle, and you could tell he approved of the outcome by the way he was describing the battle, the tone might be described as upbeat or positive.<br />
  12. 12. Figurative Language - Irony<br />Irony is a word used to describe a situation in which what is expected to happen and what actually happens are very different.<br />Another way to think of irony is:<br />Literary technique which involves surprising, interesting or amusing contradictions.<br />
  13. 13. Irony<br />There are 3 types of irony:<br />verbal irony is when an author says one thing and means something else.<br />dramatic irony is when an audience perceives something that a character in the literature does not know.<br />irony of situation is a discrepancy between the expected result and actual results. <br />
  14. 14. Character Traits<br />Characters have unique attributes called traits. These are used to describe a character. Here are some examples of traits:<br />
  15. 15.

He had forgotten how shiny and white they were.<br />What does the word splendor mean here?<br />Answer: brilliance or magnificence<br />
