    Literary Terms and Literature Guides

    I'm curious if/when literary terms are introduced and practiced in the literature guides. I've looked through the samples in 6-8th grades, and it's not obvious that literary terms and elements are discussed.

    I see that the story content is discussed well (including character, setting, plot), but I don't see references to literary elements such as symbolism, metaphor, or irony.

    Is that type of study included in the literature guides at any point?

    I'm asking because I need a LOT of hand-holding and direction in this area!

    Thanks,
    Lauren

    Lauren,

    Literary terms are taught in the upper school guides that have the Pre-Grammar, Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric stage breakdowns. That should be most of the guides for grades 9-12.
