This 15-slide PowerPoint uses clean and uncluttered slides
to teach the literary element of plot structure. In addition to information on plot,, the PowerPoint is structured to include guidance on taking notes in Cornell-method format. A guided notetaking form is included which matches the format of the PowerPoint. Slide handouts that include supplemental information for your presentation are also included.
What you receive in this zipped folder:
~ A Powerpoint with slides that guide students through the process of using the guided notetaking form for taking Cornell notes
~ This same PowerPoint includes slides that share information about plot structure, using the Freytag pyramid, which explain the different parts of plot structure (exposition, inciting incident, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution).
~ The PowerPoint finishes with slides that guide students through the process of checking their notes with a partner and summarizing what they have learned.
~ A separate PDF contains a guided notetaking form that matches the PowerPoint. Items that students should fill in from the PowerPoint are in bright colors to easily catch the eye.
~ A separate PDF notes document gives a thumbnail for each slide, plus additional information or talking points to include as you deliver your presentation.
If you prefer an all-PDF version of this
that includes landscape-style slides plus all supporting documents in one easy PDF download, you can find an identical product in PDF form at this listing: Plot Structure Presentation and Guided Notes (all PDF).
