This is a handout for students to explore the different variations of words concerning diction. It is a graphic for students to fill out examples of words(diction) that compares and contrast the positive and negative connotations, the varying level of abstract to concrete diction, the differences in formal or informal diction , and the difference in literal and figurative. It gives them an example of each, then students are encouraged to do some investigation on thier own with resources to fill in other examples. This is a good activity to give students after some discussion of diction, notetaking or a powerpoint explaining it. I have a Diction powerpoint on here, if you do not have one.
