In this excerpt from James Joyce's short story "Araby," what literary device does the author use to describe the scene? We walked through the flaring streets, jostled by drunken men and bargaining women, amid the curses of labourers, the shrill litanies of shop-boys who stood on guard by the barrels of pigs' cheeks, the nasal chanting of street-singers, who sang a come-all-you about O'Donovan Rossa, or a ballad about the troubles in our native land. personification simile metaphor imagery
In addition to traditional events like bake sales and car washes, young activists have raised money through more creative means. Many use special occasions, such as birthdays and bar or bat mitzvahs, to ask their friends and families to donate money to animal rights, rather than give gifts.

Read the rough-draft paragraph. Exercising daily is one of the best ways to help the body fight fatigue, illness, stress, and weight gain. Whether taking a bike ride, enjoying a walk, or going for a swim, the type of activity is not as important as exercising consistently. Often, people begin the new year with the resolution of exercising, but within a few months that commitment is quickly forgotten. The key is to choose something that is accessible, enjoyable, and affordable. Exercising just thirty minutes a day not only strengthens the heart and lungs, but it also helps to boost one’s energy. Another way to feel more energized is to eat a balanced diet. Since no single food item can supply the body with everything it needs, it is important to eat a variety of foods. So to maintain a long, happy life, get out there and get moving, and enjoy a wide range of healthy meals. Which statement best describes the mistake the writer makes in this paragraph? The writer makes punctuation and/or grammatical errors. The writer misuses transitions to connect ideas and thoughts. The writer loses focus and shifts to another topic. The writer forgets to include supporting details.
The writer loses focus and shifts to another topic
Read the rough-draft paragraph. Studies support the claim that volunteering on a regular basis actually benefits one’s general physical health. Depending on the needs of an organization, many volunteer opportunities can involve physical movement. Volunteers at a local soup kitchen may, for example, find themselves unloading truckloads of donated supplies. Other research related to volunteering and staying healthy found that volunteers often experienced decreased chronic pain and fewer symptoms of heart disease. Of course, not all volunteer positions involve physical exertion. Tasks involving minimal movement, such as answering phones, filing papers, and/or addressing envelopes, should be combined with some type of physical activity. Using the stairs instead of an elevator or walking to work instead of driving are examples of easy ways to integrate exercise into a daily routine. Which statement most accurately describes the issue(s) in this paragraph? The paragraph has punctuation, grammatical, and spelling errors. The paragraph is choppy and in need of transitions. The paragraph lacks supporting details. The paragraph contains sentences that wander from the main topic.

1. Which is the best paraphrase of the first paragraph? THE HIGH SCHOOL STEP TEAM Karla's cousin Jade urged her to join the step team."This afternoon you should defiantly try out!" Jade suggested after the final bell rang. "I know she wants the best for me," Karla thought to herself," but I'm not sure I'd be any good, and I'd feel embarrassed if I messed up in front of others." Karla had seen step teams in action: they stomped, they clapped, and they performed all kinds of synchronized moves "Our team is not as amazing as professional steppers, but we have a lot of fun!" Jade said. "Also, if you join the team, you will instantly have forty new friends!" "I like the idea of forty new friends," Karla thought to herself. "Still, I'm worried about bringing up my math grade. I'd better play it safe for now" she decided. "I really appreciate your concern, but I've got to say no thanks for now" Karla told Jade. " I'm going for after school help in math" As Karla turned away from Jade and walked down the hall towards math class, she pictured her cousin shrugging her shoulders "Okay do whatever you think is best," Jade said. I'll see you at home" Karla went to the after school math session. The work was challenging and she had to concentrate, and she The teacher said nice things to Karla about her efforts to grasp the ideas the were studying "And yet" Karla thought" I still have a lot of work and study ahead of me" When the afterschool math session ended Karla peeked into the gym. "Hey that's my cousin!" Jade cried out. "Come over here Karla." Forty male and female students stopped in midroutine to look at Karla. Too embarrassed to refuse , she joined one of the lines Karla soon learned that stepping requires a lot of mental energy. "It's something like math" she thought silently, "but not exactly the same. I have to connect my brain to my body and make it move or stop at exactly the right moment. The key here is to execute every movement skillfully" Very soon, Karla had mastered the teams trademark "Slap-finger-snap-slap-slap-stomp That night, Karla got to work on math At first ,she felt guilty about the time she spent in gym. Then she reminded herself of the of saying."All work and no play make Jack a dull boy." An English teacher once told her the origins of the cliché go all the way back to ancient Egypt. As Karla Worked she was surprised to find that she suddenly understood her algebra problems better than she had before. "there must be some carryover effect from step practice," she concluded. The concentration and focus that she exercised in step team practice seemed to help her focus more clearly on her math. Karla smiled as she thought," Who would have guessed that spending time with step team might be more helpful to my math grade than spending time on math work?" Later Karla was as much as a member of the step team as anybody" I don't feel the least bit embarrassed anymore" She told Jade "When I am stepping I feel completely focused on the rhythm of the team and working together with my forty new friends. •After school , jade tells her cousin Karla to try out for the step team . •Jade cares about her cousin Karla and makes a suggestion to her. •Karla listens as her cousin jade tells her about being on the step team. •Karla hears the bell ring and runs into her cousin jade.
The best paraphrase of the first paragraph is...
- After school, Jade tells her cousin Karla to try out for the step team.

Which technique do authors use to develop characters? detailing the time period, culture, and place making a statement that is a universal truth using figures of speech and rhetorical devices describing a character by its physical appearance, actions, and dialogue
Describing a character by its physical appearance, actions, and dialogue
Characterization, or also the way in which authors develop characters through a story, includes describing a character by its physical appearance, actions, gestures, behavior, interests, and dialogue. Authors can develop their characters in a direct way, for example, when they directly label them as something or when they state their traits in a straightway: "Ada is a stubborn 15-year-old girl who...", or authors can use indirect characterization, that is to say, they can show how a character is like by only narrating their actions, speech and thoughts.
Which line in the excerpt from The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne is an example of metaphor? "I joy to hear it," answered the physician. "It may be that my remedies, so long administered in vain, begin now to take due effect. Happy man were I, and well deserving of New England's gratitude, could I achieve this cure!" "I thank you from my heart, most watchful friend," said the Reverend Mr. Dimmesdale with a solemn smile. "I thank you, and can but requite your good deeds with my prayers." "A good man's prayers are golden recompense!" rejoined old Roger Chillingworth, as he took his leave. "Yea, they are the current gold coin of the New Jerusalem, with the King's own mint mark on them!"
Which excerpt best exemplifies the gothic literary style? He approached the temple. As he went forward the light retired, and, when he put his feet within the apartment, utterly vanished. The suddenness of this transition increased the darkness that succeeded in a tenfold degree. Fear and wonder rendered him powerless. An occurrence like this, in a place assigned to devotion, was adapted to intimidate the stoutest heart. (from Wieland by Charles Brockden Brown) In good health, the air is a cordial of incredible virtue. Crossing a bare common, in snow puddles, at twilight, under a clouded sky, without having in my thoughts any occurrence of special good fortune, I have enjoyed a perfect exhilaration. I am glad to the brink of fear. In the woods too, a man casts off his years, as the snake his slough, and at what period so ever of life, is always a child. In the woods, is perpetual youth. (from "Nature" by Ralph Waldo Emerson) Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time; (from "A Psalm of Life" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow) Darsie was the second daughter in a family of six, and by reason of her upsetting nature had won for herself that privilege of priority which by all approved traditions should have belonged to Clemence, the elder sister. (from A College Girl by Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey)
