Next on the schedule was tips for our CSAP packet. This week the packet deals with poetry. Here are some hints!!!
- Literal: exact meaning of a word
- Figurative: non-literal meaning (has to be interpreted)
- Figurative language: using words and phrases in an unusual way when they don't mean exactly what they say. Authors use figurative language to give their writing more color and power.
- Example of figurative language: similes and metaphors
- Authors may use these! Do you know what they are?
For question 38, use a line from the poem, not a sentence. State the line, effect, and then explain why.Being Wednesday, for grammar we worked on clauses and sentence types. The first sentence contained a single independent clause therefore making it a simple sentence. The second sentence had an independent clause and a dependent clause which means it is a complex sentence.
Unfortunately there was not a lot of time for fishbowl, but one of the main topics discussed in the short time was the future of the generation that 9/11 didn't truly affect.
