This 25 slide PowerPoint presents the basic character types (round, flat, etc.) and literary elements (theme, conflict, etc.) using the movie "The Princess Bride."
My students will watch the movie and then they take notes from the PowerPoint. I then have them work on analyzing the movie using the elements they just learned. It is not necessary to watch the movie before you use this PowerPoint--but it is more fun!
