Do you want to teach your students to analyze an author's craft, but don't quite know where to start? This PowerPoint is the perfect starting place! After explaining what is meant by "author's craft", I focused on six techniques used by authors, including imagery, voice, figurative language, analogy, sentence fluency, and interesting use of language. In all, students will analyze twenty-one book excerpts, and make judgments about how an author crafted a particular sentence, paragraph, or section. This resource contains a 36-slide PowerPoint.
***A PowerPoint companion handout is also included in this file. As you advance through the PowerPoint, students can record their answers on the handout. The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides.**
Also, you DO have my permission to convert this PowerPoint to a Google Slides format to share with your students.
The PowerPoint contains the following format:
Slides 1-9: Introduction
Slide 10: Imagery
Slides 11-18: Figurative Language
Slide 19: Voice
Slide 20: Analogy
Slide 21: Sentence Fluency
