Style in Independent Reading Book

This assignment is adapted from Springboard page 130, which reads:

  • Write a brief summary of the literary and syntactical elements that contribute to a writer’s style. Be sure to do the following:
    • Create a topic sentence that clearly introduces the topic
    • Explain and organize the basic elements of style.
    • Use at least one example of a style or syntactical element to illustrate your topic.
  • For this assignment, you will use your current IR novel. I would encourage you:
    • to use the Sample Style Analysis Essay (page 129) as a model.
    • IGNORE THE LAST BULLET FROM SPRINGBOARD. Identify multiple elements and discuss them, just as the sample does, but DO HAVE evidence from the text
