Product Description
This power point provides everything for a study of the short story "Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." Before reading, students will identify the main events in the author’s life (Ambrose Bierce) using a graphic organizer. At the beginning of the file are slides about Bierce's life. There are also pictures front the Civil War era to increase interest. During reading, students will identify the plot of the story using questions and answers as they read. Students will also identify literary elements. After reading, students will complete a graphic organizer to compare the story to the author’s life to understand how “art imitates life.” Students will write an essay to compare the author’s life to events in the story. Students will self edit their essay for content. If a teacher has struggling writers, students may just complete the graphic organizer to compare the author's life to the story. A model essay is also included to help as well. The essay has been marked for edits to show students how to do the self edit. This file accompanies Glencoe's American Literature to 1900, edition for 2009. Thanks for looking and Happy English. Penny Wood
