Literary Terms

Literary Terms
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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.

• 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
• What is the meaning of photographic?
• What is the meaning of biography?
• What is the meaning of telegraph?
Action and linking verbs:
Jana ate the sandwich.
Pedro is happy today.
“ate” is an action verb, it describes the
action of eating.

with being happy without using an action.

Folk Tale
• A folk tale is a story that has been passed
down through oral tradition over many
generations. Folk tales often reflect the

being rewarded and evil being punished.
