I first taught Cormier’s ‘Heroes’ fifteen years, and with each year that passes I feel in grows in importance. This dynamic power point lesson covers the meaning of chapter 1 through structured tasks and academic writing. All of the slides are decorated in a meaningful and engaging way, all moving towards developing an understanding of narrative, characters and themes. I have used this resource to lead my teaching in class, as a homework assignment and even as a revision tool – all have worked well for the students.
This power point lesson contains a starter activity, a recap on previous learning, summary and analysis questions, an academic writing task, an extension task and a plenary. Perfect for class, perfect as a distance learning material and more than suitable for flip learning. Enjoy!
