5
How Writers Create Setting
  • Details Adding details makes the story seem more
    believable.
  • Sensory Imagery Adding details that appeal to
    the readers sight, smell, taste, touch, and
    hearing creates a vivid picture.

6
Point of View This is the view from which the
story is told
  • View the movie directly below these notes on the
    short story unit page called Point of View Movie

7
Theme what the story is about--the issues that
it explores
  • A theme is a universal idea.
  • A theme teaches a specific lesson or moral.
  • Most stories have more than one theme.
  • For example sometimes its better to turn a
    person in to the cops if it means they will turn
    their life around and be a more positive and
    successful person!

8
Imagery uses details to describe something and
evoke feelings
The icy hail furiously pelted my car,
leaving magnificent holes in the smooth hood. The
sound pierced my ears ruthlessly, as I tried to
find shelter.
  • Imagery gives you detailed pictures in your mind.

9
Symbol an image, character, or action that
stands for an idea beyond its literal meaning
Some arent...
Some are obvious...
10
Tone is like the authors tone of voice--it
tells you their attitude towards the characters,
setting, etc.
She dismally muttered that shed always love
him, even though he was gone. Shed never love
again.
Whats the tone here?
11
Irony to intend a meaning opposite of what is
expected. There are a few kinds of irony.
  • Dramatic Irony The audience knows something that
    the character does not.
  • Situational Irony when the opposite of what was
    expected happens.

12
Dramatic Irony You know what the farmer does not.
13
Situational Irony Youd expect cheetahs to run,
not speed-walk.

16
Hyperbole an exaggerated statement used to make
a strong effect
Whoa! That cookie looks like a million bucks!
17
Foreshadowing A writing technique that gives
readers clues about what will happen later in the
story.
As he pondered the morning, he reassured himself
that he locked the door. Something kept telling
him otherwise, but he pushed it out of his mind.
What might this be foreshadowing?
18
Flat/static Character A flat character has one
dimension. They are filling a space in the story
and have no life outside their function.
Stereotypes are flat characters. Villains who are
totally evil are flat characters. Heroes who
always do the right thing and never have doubts
or fears are flat characters. Round Character
A round character is a major character in a work
of fiction who encounters conflict and is changed
by it. Round characters tend to be more fully
developed and described than flat, or static
characters.. Also Known As major character or
dynamic characters.
Types of Character
19
Dynamic Character In a story, a dynamic
character is someone who undergoes an important
change because of the action in the plot. For
example, a person who goes from being nasty to
being generous and helpful. Character grows
emotionally. Protagonist the main character in
the story (usually good guy) Antagonist the
force against the protagonist (usually bad guy)
Types of Character
