Crash Course created two episodes about Slaughterhouse Five, and this is Part 1! This video provides an overview of the novel, including major themes and historical background.
The course would be a good introduction to the novel, including central characters and ideas that students will be prepared to recognize as they read.
This graphic organizer will help students catch the key ideas of the lesson. This graphic organizer is based on "Cornell Notes," which leads students to review a topic multiple times, therefore enhancing their understanding of the lesson.
This product includes a teacher key.
Students will probably NOT catch everything on their own, so make sure to allot time to review the answers together if you want students to catch all of the concepts. It would be a good idea to review the organizer as a class before watching the video.
