Transcript of Untitled Prezi

BreAnn, Cydney, and Amanda Tall Tales in Tom Sawyer Tall Tale #1 When the boys are seen at their own funeral sermon they are considered, "the dead boys walking down the aisle." When in fact, they are not dead at all. Tall Tale #2 When the boys cross the river, they describe it
as rough, and choppy. When really are crossing a
small, calm river. Tall Tale #3 The White Wash scene is portrayed as a story
itself. It shows Tom tricking his friends into doing his work by making it sound glorious, and appealing. Tall Tale #4 When the children are beat by the school house teacher, they say that he beats them so hard, dust and dirt flies off their clothes. This is an exaggeration. Which ones are the best and why? I think the best tall tale is tall tale #1 is the best because the 3 boys tricked everyone into thinking they were dead. It's funny because it seems as if the adults only respected Tom, Huck, and Joe after they were 'dead'. Do these tales serve as metaphors? These tales do serve as metaphors. They are extremely exaggerated, example: Do they provide us with additional insight into Tom’s world? Yes they provide us with additional insight into Tom's world because, Tall Tale #1 gives us Tom's reasoning to
not come back and why he didn't come back as soon as he did. It tells us more about his character. What does it take for Tom to weave a successful tale? To 'weave' a successful tale Tom Sawyer needs to
mature more and live more as an adult than a child (since he is growing up). He also needs to realize what the consequences will be when he does something wrong. What is a metaphor? a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance Rough River The boys set out on their "pirate adventure" and the water was described as alot worse than it really was.
