English 11: Week in Review for September 8-11

Engaging the Audience
This week we discussed the importance of engaging the audience in a subject before getting into the details. Next week, you will get a chance to practice those skills as you craft a rough draft for your personal narrative.

We also took a closer look at how writers organize and progress their ideas in a narrative using elements of characterization and plot to emphasize a specific theme. Hopefully, that helped you plan the outline for your personal narrative.

We defined diction as word choice and began a discussion of how the values and emotions associated with specific words can help a writer emphasize a tone or attitude about the subject. We will go into more depth with that next week.

Make sure you have your outline turned in before Monday and have a good weekend!
