11 Lesson 6 1.5 Defining Experiences
Purpose To explain how a writer creates effects through the connotations of words and images To use textual details to support interpretive claims

12 Bell Ringer Diction, Denotation, Connotation
Define the following terms found on page 14 Diction Denotation Connotation

13 What does diction look like?
Diction is word choice. When writing, use vocabulary suited for the type of assignment. Words that have almost the same denotation (dictionary meaning) can have very different connotations (implied meanings). Examples: Formal Diction Casual Diction Slang (very informal) are not angry aren't mad ain't ticked What makes the previous phrases similar? Different?

14 Denotation vs Connotation How to remember the difference
Denotation is the Dictionary Definition (literal) Example: Home = the place you live Connotation is the emotional meaning attached to the word Example: Home = a loving place where family resides OR a battle field of conflict

15 Tying it together… Diction, Denotation, Connotation
Connotations In the following sentences, choose between the words in parentheses to make the sentence have as negative a connotation as possible. The leader was his nation’s most (notorious, well-known, famous) advocate. Immigrants (thronged, flocked, swarmed) to the large cities. A (trim, skinny, slender) woman entered the room. The man was (inebriated, drunk, intoxicated). Where did you find that (outfit, get-up, attire)?

16 Guided Reading pages 15-17 As you read, highlight the text for examples of diction, syntax, and imagery that creates the narrator’s voice. Make sure to identify ONE word that you don’t know and see if you can figure it out based on your etymology packet.
