The Language of Literature (Grade 7)

by James Marshall Arthur N. Applebee Judith A. Langer Andrea B. Bermúdez Sheridan Blau Rebekah Caplan Peter Elbow Susan Hynds

Reading literature often leads to other kinds of reading experiences. For example, you may read about a historical event in this book and then do research on that event for social studies class. When you read encyclopedia articles, newspapers, magazines, Web pages, and textbooks, you are reading for information. This kind of reading requires you to use a different set of skills. Where do stories come from? Some are whispered in the glow of a campfire. Others are discovered in a book. Wherever you find them, all stories begin in someone's imagination. Stories that come from a writer's imagination are called fiction. Two forms of fiction are short stories and novels. Both contain the elements of plot, character, setting, and theme. Sometimes a writer bases a fictional story on actual events or on real people, adding invented elements such as additional characters or dialogue. The purpose of fiction is to entertain, but it can also provide the reader with a deeper understanding of life.
