Course Description

Literary Elements are the foundational building blocks of all stories. Students will learn to identify basic elements (setting, point of view, plot, character, conflict, theme), and to evaluate whether an author has used them effectively to convey the intended message. Each day, students will participate in the reading and discussion of various short stories, analyze the elements, and complete activities that will help to display an understanding of the work as a whole.
