This PowerPoint includes three weeks worth of class starters that will engage students, revive their imaginations, review literary terms, make comparisons, and HAVE FUN!
These starters are directly geared toward the month of October that include questions regarding pop culture figures like Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, Steven King, and even the creature from the Lord of the Rings.
Students will be humored and may even be shocked by some of the images which is the desired effect as students will engage themselves with material that connects to their daily life and involves humor! Some starters will even force them to think outside the box.
This set of starters are geared towards upper level high school students as terms such as irony, ad hominem, denotation, connotation, logos, and anaphora are used.
