This is a note on elements of a narrative in PowerPoint format that I have used with English classes of all grades, depending on their ability levels. It makes a great introduction to short stories, novels, or drama units.
The note contains information on what is a narrative, what the main elements of a narrative are (plot, character, point of view, etc), along with explanations and examples for each.
The file contains 2 versions of the note: one is the master copy for the teacher to project in front of the class; the second is a student copy with blanks for students to fill in.
I print out the appropriate slides using a Microsoft Word print setting that puts 3 slides on each page and use as the student handout. (If you need help to do this contact me through the Q&A section).
I use this 'fill-in-the-blank' note taking technique as scaffolding for students who struggle to take notes and follow discussion/explanation at the same time, and to ensure students are paying attention, rather than mindlessly copying without registering what they are writing down.
