I created this engaging, thorough 58-slide PowerPoint for incorporating the Common Core Reading Standards for Literature (grades 9-10) into a daily journal entry. (You can read about my inspiration on my blog @ http://whatstudentsteach.blogspot.com/).
Each entry corresponds with the CCS listed in the Table of Contents in the free preview. Organized as such, teachers could also pick and choose portions of the PowerPoint to use in class as applicable when teaching the specific standards (as a mini-lesson, review, activating strategy, etc.) I purposely did not number the prompts to allow for such usage. I also left out specific journal formatting instructions (date/title/copy prompt, etc.) so you could tailor these to your individual needs.
For each standard, there is a slide containing a thought provoking writing prompt to activate prior knowledge, a slide providing discussion points on the topic, a slide containing a practice activity to apply the standard (using an excerpt from classic literature) and a slide to review/summarize student learning about the standard. I chose to use classic literature in the practice exercises to expose students to these classic texts AND to address Standard 10 which deals with range of reading/text complexity, but you could easily substitute excerpts/texts from your curriculum or unit if they are more practical for your needs.
Finally, I included some teaching points in the “notes” area of some slides, and many slides do include sound effects, so either turn the volume up or down according to your personal preference!
