Prepping to teach American Literature made easy! Included in this teaching pack is a PowerPoint for each Realism, Naturalism, and Modernism, along with a set of graphically organized teacher's notes, and a blank graphic organizer for students to take notes from the PowerPoint.
There are four video links included in this pack, and each are approximately 28 minutes long -- two for Realism, and two for Modernism. Everything is aligned with the PIES approach: teaching American Literature through the political, intellectual, economic, and social lenses in order to understand the literature, and organize their notes. Each PowerPoint begins with a journal question for students to think about each topic.
I use these every year in my own classroom and have had a lot of success with student understanding, and ease of teaching and prep! Please remember to leave feedback so that I may update and revise my products as necessary :)
