Unit 1 Vocabulary Terms
Author's voice: the author's style, the quality that makes his or her writing unique, and which conveys the author's attitude, personality, and character; some components of voice include syntax, diction, punctuation, character development, dialogue, tone, imagery, etc

Imagery: the use of vivid or figurative language to represent objects, actions, or ideas, typically stimulates the 5 senses
Example of Snapshot Writing
Writers are like photographers with giant zoom lenses, observing life in incredibly fine detail, pulling back to make sweeping generalizations, then zooming in again to make those generalizations come alive with detail. Look at the way Jerry Spinelli makes a dilapidated house come alive in his young adult novel, Maniac Magee.

Maniac had seen some amazing things in his lifetime, but nothing as amazing as that house. From the smell of it, he knew this wasn't the first time an animal had relieved itself on the rugless floor. In fact, in another corner he spotted a form of relief that could not be soaked up by newspapers.
Cans and bottles lay all over, along with crusts, peelings, cores, scraps, rind, wrappers—everything you would normally find in a garbage can. And everywhere there were raisins.
As he walked through the dining room, something—an old tennis ball—hit him on top of the head and bounced away. He looked up—into the laughing faces of Russell and Piper. The hole in the ceiling was so big they both could have jumped through it at once. He ran a hand along one wall. The peeling paint came off like cornflakes.
Nothing could be worse than the living and dining rooms, yet the kitchen was. A jar of peanut butter had crashed to the floor; someone had gotten a running start, jumped into it, and skied a brown, one-footed track to the stove. On the table were what appeared to be the remains of an autopsy performed upon a large bird, possibly a crow. The refrigerator contained two food groups: mustard and beer. The raisins were even more abundant. He spotted several of them moving. They weren't raisins, they were roaches (1990, pp. 131-132).

Imagery is ___________________________________________________________________________.
The 5 senses are:
Sight, Hearing, Taste, Smell, Touch

Think about your favorite place in the whole world. I want you to write 5 lines of imagery about that place (one line referring to each of the 5 senses) THE TRICK… Don’t say the name of your place… we are going to try and guess what it is.

Example: (Guess Mrs. Zachary’s favorite place)

My alarm clock is the sun rising above the ocean as I walk onto the patio and I am treated to a show of whales and dolphins frolicking in the sea. (sight) I quickly get dressed and walk to the nearest local market where people are talking, bargaining, music is playing, and the ocean makes its presence known by crashing her waves into the beach. (sound) I savor the delicious banana bread, fresh fruits, and homemade guacamole. (taste) When I return to the condominium we call home for the next two weeks, I change into my bathing suit, find a chair, and let the rays of the sun wrap me up like a warm blanket. (touch) Before I get a sunburn, I get out the lotion that is so rich with coconut milk and prepare myself for a day full of fun, sun, and family time. (smell)

Where am I?______________________________ Circle the DICTION that stands out.
Appearance vs. Reality
OMG, I just
thought of the best lyric ever!
WHERE is my journal?! I LOVE
inducing or suggestive of a particular feeling or state of mind

EX: This video puts me in such a good mood. It makes me laugh and feel happy.
Don't wait for me to
tell you to write this
down. Be proactive, guys! You're in high school now.

Examples of how "TONE" might be discussed:
He replied in a friendly tone.
They spoke in hushed tones.
Don't use that rude tone of voice with me.
the low tones of an organ
The speech had religious tones to it.
The author's tone shows her attitude toward the subject.
The professor's condescending tone irritated some students.
a bright, dark, or light tone of blue
the soft tones of the painting

the author's attitude, tone is all about the presenter or the characteristics of the thing on display: the ATTITUDE OF THE AUTHOR, a painting (any kind of art actually), an instrument, even a color or speaker; TONE IS NOT ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL!!!
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
Calvin Coolidge
