Symbolism in "The Scarlet Ibis" 20 points Due:______________ A symbol is a thing or idea that stands for something else. Authors use symbols to enhance the theme or to give readers a greater understanding of a key idea in the story. The main symbol in this story is the scarlet ibis itself. The author implies that the bird is like Doodle, and at the end of the story, the narrator tells himself that his brother looks just like the sad, lifeless bird. To get us ready for this symbol, the author "paints" his story in read. Assignment: Skim through the story and find 5 things, images, ideas that are red. Recreate the chart you see below to record them. Follow the example given for you. Remember to use quotation marks to show that you have taken this information directly from the text.
