This 15-slide presentation (originally created as a PowerPoint but saved here in a PDF version) uses clean and uncluttered slides to teach the literary element of plot structure. In addition to information on plot,, the presentation is structured to include guidance on taking notes in Cornell-method format. A guided notetaking form is included which matches the format of the presentation. Additional information and talking points are included for teachers to use as they present.
What you receive in this PDF document:
~ Landscape-style slides that guide students through the process of using the guided notetaking form for taking Cornell notes
~ Landscape-style 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).
~ Landscape-style slides that guide students through the process of checking their notes with a partner and summarizing what they have learned.
~ A guided notetaking form (PDF) that matches the presentation. Items that students should fill in from the PowerPoint are in bright colors to easily catch the eye.
~ A notes document that gives a thumbnail for each slide, plus additional information or talking points to include as you deliver your presentation.
All available here as a single PDF for easy download!
