The Sentence Syntax in Famous Works of Literature Power Point contains 10 slides each with a different passage from famous literary works ranging from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to Bram Stoker’s Dracula to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Final Problem. Students are asked to figure out the sentence structure or syntax of each excerpt in order to connect grammar study with actual practice and use in literary writing. For additional help, students can press the space bar in order to receive a hint. The hint reveals each segment by underlining a section that needs to be considered its own unit in the structure like a dependent clause, appositive, or phrase.
This Power Point pairs well with the Syntax Surgery Power Point and Syntax Shuffle Game also available for download.
