This lesson is a PowerPoint presentation using the text, Sophie's Masterpiece. It covers a wide variety of topics including: author's biography, characters' analyses, point-of-view, theme or message, making textual connections, etc. There is a link in the slides to watch an online reading of the story, too. Then students can compare the digital format to the hard copy. Which version is more effective? Why? This lesson is very comprehensive, but it can be done in about 40-50 minutes. Students will love the story; it's very touching and deals with some deep concepts of love and acceptance.
