This PowerPoint file introduces basic concepts about the terms "protagonist" and "antagonist." After a brief contrast of the terms, students apply their knowledge to a class discussion of the story "Rapunzel." Then, independent practice is provided as students choose another fairy tale, completing a graphic organizer about the protagonist and antagonist.
This presentation is good for an extended lesson block and/or for assigning independent homework as a follow-up to the lesson.
