Product Description
This package includes a 14-slide PowerPoint presentation, and guiding cloze notes with answers.

This PowerPoint presentation and accompanying set of cloze notes uses a writing prompt and exemplar derived from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" to teach students how to present and analyze textual evidence to support an thesis or claim.

Specifically, this PowerPoint outlines through notes and examples five steps to successfully present and analyze text-based evidence to support a thesis or claim.

The writing vocabulary used in this lesson is as follows:


LEAD IN - Gives context to the quotation. When? Where? In brief, what's been happening plot-wise leading up to this quotation?

ATTRIBUTIVE TAG - Whose words were borrowed? Montresor tells readers or Fortunato says

DIRECT QUOTATION - Purposefully selected because something about it makes it the best evidence for the thesis

CITATION - MLA in-text citation (Author 283).

LEAD OUT - Analysis. How or Why does this quotation help the argument being presented? As part of the analysis, the LEAD OUT often picks apart the author's use of word and phrase choices, including literary elements and techniques used. How do these writing choices made by the author support the thesis?

To create blank cloze notes for this lesson, simply print multiple PPT slides on one side of piece of paper.
