This PP presentation (18 slides) should be used to introduce the novel prior to reading. I usually referred to the information in the PP throughout the reading and discussion of the novel.
The PP contains information about:
- Bronte's background
- the setting of the novel ("wuthering" and moors)
- Wuthering Heights as a "romantic" novel
- frame narrative
I utilized this PP with my English IV students. I lectured/discussed the information within the PP to give the students a purpose for reading. It usually took about one class period (45 minutes) to go through the information on the PP and allow students time to take notes and ask questions. *I suggest using the Cornell note-taking strategy.
