Wed., Oct. 14

Have you read Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why? He has a blog here. He would be a great author to add to your Google Reader! Remember how to do add a subscription?

In your Writer's Notebook, work with your group to identify at least three literary/poetic devices used in this introductory sentence:

"Half past a windless night, rain cantered out of the Gulf, across the shore and the levees: parades of phantom horses striking hoof rhythms from roofs of tarpaper, tin, tile, shingles, slate, counting cadence along the avenues."
~ Dan Koontz's Frankenstein: Dead and Alive (Book Three), page 1

Reader's Workshop:

  • A-Tone-ment Time! Let's hear that attitude!
  • First, go here and read the linked article.
