This is a great slide show for students brushing up at the end of the year and preparing for the NYS English Regents. This could be modified for any classroom but I was preparing my students to take the regents. It contains 24 slides of literary techniques and elements and examples from literature read in the 11th grade classrooms around the nation. If an example doesn't fit for your classroom, use an example from books you teach. I have used The Crucible by Arthur Miller; Lord of the Flies by William Golding; Speak by Laurie Hals Anderson; Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose; Macbeth and Julius Caesar by Shakespeare; Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck; Anthem by Ayn Rand; and last but not least, 1984 by George Orwell. I hope this helps students to write about literature in a more analytical way rather than just saying they found a literary element. They explain how it is used.
