Adding Adverbs
Literary Analysis Essay
Roots Sentences
Do Now
Now, write original sentences using each of the ten related words. Here's an additional challenge: Use at least one adverb in each of your sentences. Don't use any adverb more than once!!!! (too many exclamation points)
Think about The Wizard of Oz. Jot down a couple (2) themes you believe the movie expressed. Use your packet if it helps.

Now, choose one of the two you wrote down and come up with TWO pieces of evidence you could use to support the theme.
Another friendly competition... add as many adverbs as you can to this story. Use your list if you need to. And make sure they all *make sense*. This is only a useful exercise if you choose adverbs that improve the story.
"Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. It has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word solitude to express the glory of being alone."
Paul Tillich

Looking at story details
Finding patterns in the details
Generalizing from the patterns
Identifying a theme that could be applied to anyone.
