This product contains: A PowerPoint close-reading think aloud which includes poem, annotations, and questions, my original hand drawing of Emily, and 16 quotes by Emily Dickinson to use as task cards or mini posters. There is a blank template page to add quotes of your choice.
The PowerPoint think aloud analyzes the literary devices used (e.g., personification, imagery, symbolism, etc.) along with teacher annotations which appear as custom animations (arrows pointing, timely reveal of important information). The presentation is versatile inasmuch as students can view independently after their own analysis, it can be used for test review, or the teacher can lead post-reading discussion while running it. Higher-level questions, text-to-text comparison. Printable copy of poem at end of the presentation.
Text-to-text connections with Dylan Thomas' "Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night."
Includes sketch of Emily Dickinson. If you choose to use this sketch for commercial use, please site credit to Mira-Francine Originals with a link back to this page. Thank you!
