This presentation is the first in a series of four related to "The Literature and Poetry of the Middle East and North Africa." This presentation introduces students to the topics covered in the unit, includes a prior knowledge test (or use it as a whole-group activity), geography connections, stereotypes/prejudices/biases, journalism and non-fiction, literary devices, and poetry. Other topics include irony, motifs, and literary analysis.
I used this presentation with my 10th grade World Literature class. Please let me know if the .pptx format does not clearly convey the Arabic fonts used throughout the presentation (to show students what the language looks like). This presentation can be modified to suit your needs.
