Incorporating literary terms into a thesis?





My teacher is having us make an essay about a book as a speech in english, and we have to use 2-3 literary terms to make a thesis. The project is based on 1 of the 4 motivational posters in the classroom, and since i read the book "adventures of tom sawyer", i chose teamwork. Anyways, does anyone have an idea about how i could make the thesis? I have no idea how to do it.

    Literary terms are metaphors, alliteration, foreshadowing, puns, etc. Think of a topic like it’s a question: “What shows teamwork in Tom Sawyer?” Your thesis answers this in a specific way. For instance, a thesis that uses 3 literary terms would be, “Tom uses (1) hyperbole and vivid (2) imagery to resolve (3) conflict in order to create teamwork.” The literary terms refer to how the formation of the plot and the language of the book. This includes the introduction, the rising action, the climax, the falling action, and the conclusion. You could talk about a specific part of the plot, too, which would also be literary terms. Check out [external link] … and [external link] … Remember, a thesis says how specifically an author does the something. The “something” in this case is teamwork, so you are looking for ways that happens.On a side note, you can always ask the teacher for types of literary terms that s/he is looking for. It’s always better to be safe when your grade is on the line.

    Why not start out with a flashback of some kind. Foreshadowing is a literary element that uses hints or clues to suggest what will happen later in the story.A funeral, some time in a cave, the discovery of a box of gold surpass the protagonist’s desire for adventure.
