This FREE ten slide presentation enables teachers to help students to analyze literature in depth. Each slide offers a visual lesson for Setting, Characters, Plot, Conflict, The World the Author Creates, Theme, Symbols, Tone and Literary Terms.
This presentation can be shown as an overview or reinforcement before analyzing a short story, a novel, narrative non-fiction, or as each element is introduced. I use this in English classes as well as Creative Writing classes when students are writing fiction.
By using this presentation in conjunction with any literature study, teachers are ensuring that students are building strong houses of comprehension. This slide presentation addresses the Common Core Anchor Standards for Literature (R1, 2,3, 5, 6 and 10) and Bloom's Taxonomy's Remember/Understand, Apply, Analyze and Evaluate thinking skills.
This FREE PowerPoint coordinates seamlessly with my book, "The House of Comprehension," (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-House-of-Comprehension-digital-edition-566148), a program where students learn the importance of every element of literature, and how they all mesh to form durable comprehension homes. In fact, this slide show planted the seeds in my brain for the book. Check out the free 26-page preview: (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Connie).
