This PowerPoint presentation covers the four major genres teachers cover in English or literature classes: fiction, poetry, drama, and non fiction, as well as introducing the concept of media (print media, electronic media and even social media).
A description of each genre is given as well as important literary terms from each genre that students should know and consider.
There is a slide in place for each genre for the teacher to stop and provide a piece of work to allow students to read, discuss and apply literary terms. Samples used include an excerpt from The Old Man and the Sea, the poem Los Ancianos, an excerpt from The Miracle Worker, and non-fiction writing about Pearl Harbor. Note: these excerpts are not typed on the PowerPoint but could easily be pulled from another source or substituted with the text of a teacher's choice.
The sample pages show the "Fiction" section. Similar sections are included in the complete PowerPoint for poetry, drama, non-fiction and media.
Thanks for looking!
