FROZEN JEWS DICTION ANALYSIS PARAGRAPH
PROMPT: WRITE A WELL DEVELOPED PARAGRAPH THAT EXPLAINS HOW THE CHOICES IN DICTION BUILD THE MOOD OF THE POEM. Prompts have 2 parts: The concrete portion that tells you what you must discuss, and the abstract portion—the portion that you have to determine as a reader. What is the concrete portion of this? Choices in diction What is the abstract portion? The reader has to determine the mood.
WHAT VOCABULARY WILL I USE TO DISCUSS CHOICES IN DICTION? Connotation and denotation Connotation is the emotional associations Denotation is the literal, dictionary definition Figurative language—simile, metaphor, personification imagery
