Literary Terms Symbolism A symbol is a person, place or thing that represents an abstract idea. For example, one common symbol is a dove. It is a bird, but it also stands for peace.
Symbolism • Let’s look at “Ah Tcha’s Leaves” on page 233. In folk tales, characters often symbolize, or stand for certain types of people in real life. • Ah Tcha is very wealthy at the beginning and end of the story. I think he symbolizes wealthy, powerful people.
Resolution • In author’s story structure their stories with plot elements such as conflict, rising action, climax, and resolution. • In the resolution, the conflict is resolved, the action winds down, and the story ends.
Resolution • When I look at “Ah Tcha’s Leaves” I see that the resolution is when Nu Wu charms the leaves and Ah Tcha is able to stay awake. The action winds down and the story ends as we learn that Ah Tcha becomes wealthy again. I can see how other events in the story lead up to this resolution. The resolution solves the problem of Ah Tcha falling asleep. I remember Nu Wu appeared earlier, so it makes sense she is part of the resolution.

GREEK AND LATIN ROOTS • I took a photograph of the mountain. • In Greek, photo means “light” and graph means “to write”. • This makes sense in the sentence because I know that I need light to take a picture with a camera and the light “writes” the image. Knowing this word will help me understand other words with the roots photo and graph, such as a photographic, biography, and telegraph.
GREEK AND LATIN ROOTS • What is the meaning of photographic? • What is the meaning of biography? • What is the meaning of telegraph?
Conventions • Action and linking verbs: • Jana ate the sandwich. • Pedro is happy today. • “ate” is an action verb, it describes the action of eating. • “is” is a linking verb, because it links Pedro with being happy without using an action.
