The Drummer Boy of Shiloh
This week, our class will be reading and discussing a short story, The Drummer Boy of Shiloh, by Ray Bradbury. Students will be able to determine meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative language used by the author to create impact in the meaning and tone of the story. Students will also practice their writing skills, using textual evidence to support their analysis of the story.
