This handy teacher resource compliments any reading, writing, or literature curriculum. It presents common terms used in literary analysis that help students understand the techniques authors use. For each term there is the definition and then one or more teacher-directed activities intended to clarify the term’s meaning. On the facing page is a reproducible writing activity in which students try their own hands at using the technique. This helps to cement their understanding when they can use it themselves. There is also a short test at the end of the book that can be used for assessment purposes. Answers included.
