Grab your students’ attention as you launch your study of Realism with this dynamic 26-slide Prezi presentation. Covering the period of American literature from 1850-1900, this 30-minute lecture will prep your students to dig deeper into any literary works from this era that you want. Great for giving students a general idea of the important issues and philosophies that guided the literary canon from this time period in U.S. history. Also connects materials to today’s pop culture.
A dazzling alternative to Powerpoint, Prezi allows presenters to “zoom” to their next slide and the modern design captivates a teen audience; students love the Prezi style and beg me all the time to make more. You can check out Prezi for free at www.prezi.com. I also have a free Prezi in my teacher store
, if you want to take a look.
Prezis look great on both SMARTBoards and regular classroom computers with projectors, but you don’t need any special equipment or software to use Prezi. If your computer can view a YouTube video, then you can enjoy a Prezi.
Click the “Preview” button at the top of the page to take a closer look. I hope you enjoy this fresh approach to lecturing that’s sure to keep your students’ attention.
Note: Due to the “zoom” animations, this zip file is large. The download will take a few minutes, so please be patient. When you get the folder, open it and launch the “Prezi.” Just ignore the other items; they’re needed to run the show. Your computer will ask if you want to “open” the web-created file. No worries; there’s no virus, so just open and enjoy. For full-screen viewing, be sure to click on the small icon in the lower right-hand corner (just like on YouTube).
