A unit focused on the ways language and style impact narrative. Students will look at what makes a "good" story, what makes an "effective" story, why we tell stories and what purposes storytelling might serve, and how diction and style are an essential part of storytelling.

For this project, students will show they understand plot, tone, and theme by creating an imovie that summarizes their book and theme while matching the music they create in Garage Band to the tone of the different parts of the book. The end project is similar to a movie trailer, but it summarizes the entire book.
