Transcript of EOC Prep: English 2
Plot = sequence of events
Theme = central idea
Conflict = struggle between two opposing forces
1. Vincente longed to be a doctor. He learned all the bones and organs and had much knowledge to be a doctor. The school told him to be an engineer because of his grades. He then went into the army and became a cook.He saved his wife's life because he caught something that was wrong with her that the other doctors missed.
2. The narrator experiences trouble with the school telling him to become an engineer. Eventhough deep down inside, Vincente knows he wants to be a doctor. But he listens to the school and instead becomes a cook. Then later on he realizes that he was really meant to be a doctor.
3. The theme is to follow what your hearts wants you to do
In, "A Man Told Me the Story of His Life", Grace Paley shows us that we should follow what our heart and gut tell us to do.
Point of view = perspective of which a story is told
1st person POW = narrator is the character
2nd person POW = narrator uses "you"
3rd person POW = narrator stands outside of story
1. omniscient means you are all-knowing.
2. This passage is written in 3rd person because the narrator is outside of the story and describes the characters and events.
3. They might want to use it to relate thoughts and character. A narrator might not want to use it if they don't want to do any of that.
Lesson 2: Point of View
1. The brothers and their mother were very close. They had many happy and sad memories together.
2. The story definitely needed dialogue or the story wouldn't make sense. It would have been way more boring.
3. "Sam do you remember the time when she took us ice skating?" said Peter.
"Oh yea," Peter continues, you kept falling on your but!"
Sam replies, "Yeah and then mom would try to get you back up, but then she would fall too."
"That was so funny!" says Peter.
Lesson 3: Dialogue
flashback = relates a scene from earlier
1. The narrator is scared of her plane crashing, so she thinks of her cousin Fiona. Fiona has a very soft voice and helps her through an event that happened that scared her to death.
2. The narrator uses flashback to help her think of Fiona's soft and reassuring voice. The device helps to remind her that she felt better after hearing her voice.
3. He could of put the flashback at the beginning so it would have like a timeline effect. The reader would have experienced just a normal story. Past first and the future next. Nothing special would've occurred.
Lesson 4: Flashback
foreshadowing = device used when the writer hints about a event that hasn't happened yet.
1. I thought that the enemy army would win the battle in the morning.
2. The shooting stars foreshadow the death of the soldiers
3. The meteors “burn out,” and the sight of so many of them is “extraordinary” and
“frightening.” They seem to be “struggling” and they “die away to nothingness in the
next instant.” The imagery of the
the shooting stars leave the reader feeling bad for the army.
Lesson 5: Foreshadowing
irony = contrast between appearance and reality
dramatic irony = when readers are aware of events of which the characters have no knowledge
situational irony = when the actual outcome of a situation if the opposite of what is expected
1. dramatic: When Jimmy's grandmother is working long hours and getting good money, but he thinks that she is getting enough money.
2. situational: Jimmy doesn't like the neighborhood children because they are less fortunate, but then they become rich because of the money in the grandmother's mattress.
Lesson 6: Dramatic and Situational Irony
style = expressive qualities that characterize an author's work
1. In the first few paragraphs the tone is negative. They use the words : alone, hated, painful and other ones. The figurative language causes negative feelings.
2. The paragraph is longer and more positive. Words like: gentle, swooping, and restless beauty. Emotions buildup through the metaphor of rain.
3. The author changes the style to show how important Ms. Dobson’s music is to
Mr. Kravich. The change in style takes the reader from the sad Mr. Kravich’s, and the promise of something vibrant and
good in Mr. Kravich’s life. Now, the reader can infer that Mr. Kravich loves music
and that it has great meaning for him.
Lesson 7: Style
tone = author's attitude
diction = words or phrases an author uses to convey a certain tone
1. The tone is negative and the way the author said things made it clear that he didn't like his grandfather.
2. By the end of the passage, the reader realizes that the authored learned to love his grandfather.
3. I would make it more humorous by adding more fun and big words. I would take out “jabbing impatiently” and “teased me mercilessly." The grandfather could be described as being stubborn using amusing examples. And you would need to tone down his frightening personality.
Lesson 8: Tone and Diction
hyperbole = an exaggeration
1. In paragraph 2, the author describes Klimpt’s gold tooth that “caught the sun, blinding
everyone within a ten-foot radius.” This is a hyperbole because even if a tooth is shiny, it
can’t blind people ten feet away. In paragraph 3, the author describes “that booming
voice of his that could be heard halfway to Boise.” A voice cannot carry into a
2. The narrator uses hyperbole to be funny and sarcastic. Klimpt uses hyperbole to describe the medicine he’s
trying to sell in order to impress the people listening and to persuade them to buy the
3. I will be selling perfume.
It has an extravagant smell!
It is like nothing you have ever smelled before!
Lesson 9: Hyperbole
EOC Prep: English 2
archetype = specific kind of symbol
1. Beowulf is fearless, strong, and likes challenges. He is willing to fight Grendel to help the Danes and saves people from terror.
2. In the Incredibles the family was very nice. They always had the heart to save people and get rid of the bad. It makes people feel safe because they know someone is there.
3. The Bible, Snow White, Caesar, ect.....
Lesson 11: Allusion
allusion = literary technique
1. Allusions: “like Mount St. Helens”, and “Mona Lisa smile.” The first one says that Solomon’s temper has erupted and he is furious about something. The second one refers to the self-satisfied way Odessa is looking at Solomon.
2. Gives the reader a visual and gives more texture to the story.
3. Some other allusions are Solomon's fury could be compared to Zeus, and Odessa's self-possession could be compared to the Sphinx.
Lesson 12: Symbolism
Lesson 13: Figurative Language
Lesson 14: Imagery and Motif
Lesson 15: Mood
Lesson 16: Sound Device
Lesson 17: Personification
personification = making a non-living like thing have human characteristics
1. The moon and love are both being personified. The moon as a women and love as a man.
2. It makes it feel like a fairy-tale. It is effective because the moon and the clouds are drawn to each other like two lovers.
3. Objects that are usually personified in poetry are plants, wind, grass, love, the sun, time, and death. Of course their are more, these are just a few of them.
symbolism = person, place , or things is used to represent some literal meaning
1. After reading this poem, i can think of some things about the narrator's life. He has enjoyed his past and had great memories.
2. The tree is a symbolism. I think the tree represents death. I think this because of the vocab the author used.
3. I think it represents death because it is in a safe and peaceful place. If you think about it, death is a safe place for some people when they die. Some go to heaven and some go to hell.
4. The road symbolizes a journey. It represents an individuals progress through life. Some other symbols for life can be water(rivers), house, or trees.
figurative language = describe and imply ideas directly
metaphor = direct comparison
simile = using like or as
1. These are examples of simile's. " with the summer rolled out before us like a magic carpet of possibilities," and " sparkling like a molten blue jewel under the summer sun."
2. These are examples of metaphors. "sun was a bald, burning eye," and " a seasonal pilgrimage to that promised land of urban dreams, the seashore."
3. Morning of Christmas and their was snow! It was white like a cotton ball and soft as a pillow. When you walked on it you heard a crunch and made a footprint in the snow. The snow made me feel pure and in a way i felt i could have a new beginning.
imagery = creates an image
motif = reoccurring idea
1. "smokey blue," "and a double row of white teeth," and "eyes of metallic grey." I found these striking because they scared me when i read it. It made the shark seem more intimidating.
2. "three cornered fin," "he swam," and "stirred not a bubble."
3. The narrator wants you to feel scared and be alert! He wants the feelings to evoke in the reader towards the subject matter.
mood = overall emotional quality that a poem or story creates for the reader
1. The mood is exhilarating because of what she has achieved.
2. These phrases create a mood of awe. The feeling of being overwhelmed by something beautiful.
3. The author creates excitement when he directly talks to Sylvia. And this creates drama which makes the overall mood more intense. This kinda pulls the whole thing together.
alliteration = repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of words
assonance = repetition of vowel sounds in a series of words
consonance = repetition of consonant sounds within words or at the ends of words
onomatopoeia = use of a word or phrase that imitates or suggest the sound it describes (WOW)
1. "hectic hark like a hymn" and "cackles and cries" are examples of alliteration.
2. "dark marsh"and "trees teeming with green" are examples of assonance.
3. "hot, wet nights" and "those whose souls first." are examples of consonances.
4. "hush" and "whisper" are examples of onomatopoeia.
