PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From Electric English...
These are clear, typed notes to introduce the ideas of diction and close reading of a text. Words! Words! Words! Getting students to understand that word choice is paramount to understanding a writer's purpose should be one of the ultimate goals for English teachers. This activity asks the students to make a close reading of Poe's short story, "Hop-Frog" and analyze it for word choice using the LEAD method. This method asks students to look for low or elevated diction, abstract or concrete words, and denotation or connotation. I use this method with all of my students, from AP to co-taught classes. Some classes take longer to process the material than other classes, but ultimately I have found over the years that all students benefit from the process. Make it work for you!!

NOTE: There is a fresh, clean copy of this story posted in my store under Edgar Allan Poe. Use it for what is best for you; it is free and a great story :)
