This is a powerpoint on DICTION:types, informal vs. formal, abstract vs. concrete, denotation vs. connotation. It has NOTES with practice for the students in analysis and in creating/writing of their own. The powerpoint is mostly an adaption from the book "Discovering Voice" by Nancy Dean. This package includes an analysis strategy, you can easily turn into a handout, to analyze diction. I have a worksheet on here for FREE that goes with this powerpoint. It is great to use inconjunction with a thesaurus, to expand their diction vocabulary. Please refer to the other product.
