Hi everyone, here is the week’s schedule. This week’s literary element is brought to you by point of view. We will look deeper at point of view and how it impacts our understanding of the story, on Wednesday.
Tuesday: Read section 6, from “My Sister Sends Me a Letter” up to and including “A Partridge in a Pear Tree”. We are leading up to the climax.
Wednesday: Today we will focus on Point of View. Please record the basic definition in your literary element log, and using specific examples from the story, explain how the perspective of “True Diary” helps the reader understand the plot, conflict, etc. of the story.
Monday: Reading “Hunger Pains” to “Don’t Trust Your Computer” about 25 pages
Make sure you switch your roles, you may be on the final one, or back to the one you began with.
Tuesday: This week’s literary focus is PLOT. We have discussed what the initiating incident is, can you look at what might be some events for the rising action? If you were to draw a plot diagram (Freytag’s Pyramid). What are the key events you would add? Either in a diagram, or point form please add to this week’s literary log, you will not be able to finish it yet as we have not reached the climax.
