  3. 3. TERMS
  4. 4. TERMS FOR EXAM 2 Exposition: a form of discourse that explains, defines, and interprets. The word is also applied to the beginning portion of a plot in which background information about the characters and situation is set forth. Idiom: the language, dialect, or style of speaking peculiar to a people or the constructions or expressions of one language whose structure is not matched in another language. Idioms often possess a meaning other than their grammatical or logical ones and cannot be directly translated into another language. For example, if you “rub someone the wrong way,” it means you annoy or bother a person.
  5. 5. TERMS REVIEW Interior monologue: represents the inner thoughts of a character, recording the internal or emotional thoughts or feelings of an individual. Plagiarism: literary theft, which is the taking or closely imitating of the language and thoughts of another author and representing them as one’s own—even if this is done without conscious thought. This includes self-plagiarism, which is unwittingly borrowing from your own work.
  6. 6. STONE BUTCH BLUES  At our last meeting, we discussed how specific quotations from the text gave us insight into Jess’s world, her perspective, and her development.  Today, we are going to find and analyze quotations that will support a larger argument that you might make in your next essay.  Each question we investigate today correlates to a possible essay topic for essay #3. It will be to your advantage to keep track of the evidence you compile in your groups today.
  7. 7.  Each team will have about two minutes to present an answer to a question about Stone Butch Blues.  Teams must offer specific textual evidence. In other words, there must be a quotation to which the team refers.  The team must be able to offer a brief explanation or analysis of how the quotation supports or offers the answer to the question.  If any team begins an answer but cannot finish or finishes unsatisfactorily, the next team can steal the quotation and provide analysis.  Quotations can only be used once in a round. It will behoove you to have multiple options, particularly if your group will present last.  I will be the final judge in all cases.
