Tone Word?
Thematic Purpose?

Sharing THEMATIC and THESIS sentences—do you know the difference?

THEMATIC SENTENCES are general statements of principle discovered in the reading, such as:
Ex. War’s costs weigh heavily on soldiers and civilians.
(They do not make reference to any author, novel, or stylistic efforts.)

THESIS SENTENCES of analysis reveal the aim of the author’s writing and include author, title, stylistic choices, attitude/tone, and purpose.
Ex. The dark imagery of Bao Ninh in Sorrow of War, draws yet repels, teaches yet dismays, as Ninh reveals that war destroys the spirit.
(You can arrange the elements in whatever way you deem fit as long as you have them all.)

Now, share your thesis and thematic statements for the section of the text just read, so that we may further discover the difference and also what makes them great and what makes them not so great.
With your group:
Choose a passage from your assigned chapter of TTTC.

Thoroughly annotate the passage. All group annotations should be written in all books.

Create a poster that includes:
Title of the chapter
A drawing representing an important symbol from your passage
One example of a noted literary device
Two sentences of commentary
One thematic statement
