b.) definitions and specific details for each literary genre
c.) custom transitions and animations between and within slides
d.) hyperlinks to numerous texts for reading, whole group and team analysis, including a Dickinson poem, a Poe poem, a Longfellow poem, "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" (Edwards), and more!

Everything is here for you! It can easily be adapted for any high school ELA course in which you study any of these significant American literary genres.
