Beginning with clear learning objectives, this is a highly engaging, brand new MS 2013 10-slide Power Point presentation to accomplish the following in your ELA classroom in a fun, concise manner:
*identify and analyze point of view (narrative perspective)
*identify and analyze conflict, differentiating between the 5 main types
*identify and analyze the development of a plot in any story, including setting (where & when)
*identify and analyze prior knowledge about all of the above
*apply this knowledge with a popular cultural "text" (a Pixar/Disney short film)
*extend this knowledge from student-created diagrams to any work of literature you have, are, or plan to read and study as a class!
This slideshow can easily double as printable step-by-step instructions for students to develop their understanding and analysis of character and story in any piece of literature.
With the definitions, application (eg. hyperlinked Pixar short film for viewing + reviewing), analytic student collaborative sharing and share-outs + formative assessment exit ticket feedback activity in this custom animated, graphic, interactive slide presentation, students are invited to work within the higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (eg. application, analysis, and evaluation), as well as to develop 21st Century Skills (Common Core expectations), such as collaboration/communication, media literacy, and problem-solving/critical thinking)!
Thank you very much for visiting my store. From my experience, I know how tremendously this will help your students make connections with and analyze the characters, narrative structure, and plot within the literature you study together. Enjoy, and I look forward to your feedback!
