After a minilesson on symbolism led to a dismal formative assessment, I needed to invent an acronym that would help students catch up on that all-important literary concept. Something as facile as ROY G. BIV or HOMES.

(Unless you're reading The Scarlet Letter, in which case you'd have to be Arthur Dimmesdale to withstand the itching, kvetching persistence of SYMBOLISM.)
We'll see how it goes tomorrow.
