This amazing download includes a video and PowerPoint of Ralph Waldo Emerson to use in your author study lesson plan!
The video features a portrait of Emerson that blinks, smiles, yawns, and looks around your room! This is always a great surprise for students and will definitely capture their attention immediately. Once I started using these, my students were more engaged in every presentation as they studied every slide to see if it was moving!
Also included is a 1-slide PowerPoint showing how the video can be inserted for an author study or other lesson plan. There is no sound in the video so that you can continue your lecture, discussion, or questions as the video loops continuously. You could even have it play all class long to watch students test or while you read from Nature, Self-Reliance, or any other of his works you are studying!
This video along with 9 others can also be found in this Authors of American Literature Magic Portrait Videos and PowerPoint
