Language Arts 7 – January 11

Today we:

  • sang Mrs. LaFleur “Happy Birthday” (thanks, guys!);
  • reviewed what a short story is and how it’s different from a novel;
  • reviewed the story arc: Introduction – Rising Action (conflict) – Climax – Falling Action – Conclusion
  • reviewed figurative language like simile, metaphor, personification, oxymoron, alliteration, and onomatopoeia;
  • learned about “annotation” – making notes on a text to better understand/make it our own;
  • analyzed the title of our short story, “Eleven”
  • read “Eleven” by Susan Cisnero
