Ashford 3: - Week 2 - Discussion 1


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.


Literary   Techniques and Their Connection to Conflict in Literature

Prepare: Prior to beginning your initial   post, read the required materials and review the handouts, Plot, Theme, and   Conflict   and List of Literary   Techniques.   In addition, read Chapters 4 through 7 of Journey into Literature and   choose a story from the textbook.

Reflect: All stories have a theme that   forms the plot. Also, literary elements and techniques contribute to   creating and highlighting the theme. Reflect on the theme and literary   elements and techniques in the story you have chosen to read.

  • Describe the core conflict        represented in the story.
  • Describe the theme of the        story.
  • Select three literary        elements/techniques in        the story and describe them.
  • Explain how the        elements/techniques illustrate the theme and conflict expressed in the        story.
  • Incorporate readings found in        Chapters 4 through 7 to help illustrate the points you make.

Respond to Peers: Respond to at least two of your   classmates’ initial posts. Each response should be at least 75 words in   length and should address two or more of the following points: 

  • Do you agree with your        classmates’ perspectives? Why, or why not? Be specific.

  • Challenge your classmates’        interpretation of literature and/or point of view.
