*This is a bundle of text-based language analysis Powerpoint review exercises each available for separate purchase.*
The following (20) Powerpoint slide presentation is a compilation of (4) separate Powerpoint presentations and can be used as individual or class practice (or printed as handouts) to review diction, figurative language, imagery, and syntax analysis. Each presentation of (1) terms review list and (5) slides contains a short passage from classical works of literary merit found on the public domain followed by two-three short response questions and a follow-up extension question, typically relating a thematic idea to author meaning.
Students can complete this activity as bellringers, in reader response journals, or as a class discussion. Ultimately, each slide or handout minilesson requires students to closely read the text to connect how meaning is expressed through images.
This skill is commonly practiced as an Advanced Placement™
English strategy or with pre-AP™ students practicing literary analysis techniques.
It is suggested to review one slide every class: this file allows for between 4 weeks (if daily classes) or 7-8 weeks (if on block schedule) worth of language analysis review practice.
