Thank you for your great lesson ideas! I was struggling to pull together a lesson on Literary Style. My textbooks approached it from different angles. Teaching in a community college, I needed to find a practical way to explain literary style to my students - avoiding much of the literary jargon. Your lesson was a great help to get me going in the right direction. I especially appreciated the checklist of literary styles written in "normal" language.

I was beginning to plan a unit on analyzing an author's writing style, but was having a hard time getting started. This lesson has been a HUGE help! Like said above, the lesson is organized, student-friendly, and thorough. Thank you so much!

I have just found this lesson and am very impressed. The lesson is very organized and thorough. Thank you so much for providing such an excellent resource. I especially like the checklist on Elements of Style. I plan to use the lesson with some adaptations next week with my English 10 class at an alternative high school. Thanks again.
