  16. Time Out for LIT TERMS! How would you define the literary term DETAIL? A variation on 2-column notes: Create a T-chart, and write out a definition in your own words in the “My Definition” column. Leave room on the right side of the T-chart for “Webby’s Definition.”

  17. Time Out for LIT TERMS! DETAIL = facts, observations, or incidents that shape a story  Consider facts omitted as well as those included.  Seemingly small facts often reveal the theme.
