This is a PowerPoint resource that guides you and your students on how to write an academic, organized, and well thought out literary response. It includes how to answer a prompt/question, how to cite evidence, and how to explain your answer.
I used Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart as my guiding example, as we begin the short answer response by them answer on whether the narrator was insane or not, but I used a different prompt to show the process.
I left the product in PPT format in order for you to change/edit the prompt and short answer response to best match your curriculum and your text!
I hope that you enjoyed this product! It helped my kiddos tremendously!
