PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This kit is extensive enough to use to introduce and teach key literary concepts or a great beginning of the year warm up to shake the summer rust off while assessing where your students are academically.

Kit includes:
* 9 pages of guided notes that go with...
* a 200 slide PowerPoint
* a Family Feud inspired game to practice identifying conflict
* a mini-project on characterization (student template included)
* Illustrate-the-Imagery activity (poem & graphic organizer included)
* genre examples to label notes (makes for a good partner activity)
* "I'm the Protagonist...I'm the Antagonist" activity sheet
* several video links & recommendations
* 10 additional practice activities


In organizing these skills, I divided the concepts into 6 categories: Who, What, When, Where, Why, &Etc.

PART ONE: WHO
This section covers protagonist & antagonist, characterization (flat/round & static/dynamic), and point of view (1st person, 2nd, person, 3rd person objective, 3rd person omniscient, & 3rd person limited omniscient)

PART TWO: WHAT
This part covers the parts of a plot (exposition, inciting incident, rising action, climax, falling action, & resolution), theme, motifs, and genres.

PART THREE: WHEN
This section covers foreshadowing & flashback

PART FOUR: WHERE
Follow me on this...remember that story about the babysitter being harassed by ominous phone calls that were...COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE?!?! I use that premise to springboard introducing mood, suspense, and irony (verbal, situation, & dramatic)

PART FIVE: WHY
"Why can't we just get along?" This section doesn't answer that question, but it covers the types of conflict.

PART SIX: Etc.
Here, I wrap up the unit by covering symbolism, imagery, & figurative language (simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, and allusions)
