PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint lesson is a fun way to introduce students to the Melvil Dewey and his Dewey Decimal Classification System.

The lesson begins with an overview of Melvil Dewey and includes a link to a humorous, but educational, "Melvil Dewey" rap video.

Be warned, the students go crazy for this video and will probably ask you to see it again and again!

Then, the lesson describe how the Dewey Decimal System works and the kind of books you will find in each category. For each category, I include an explanation of the types of books found along with sample photos of the covers of some of the books that would fit in each of the ten categories.

This lesson would most likely take you two thirty-minute class periods to teach.
