This PowerPoint contains a "flowchart" of information that summarizes each stanza of Poe's most famous poem, "The Raven." The transitions are set to progress at your direction so you may stop and explain each stanza.
Students write the summary next to the stanza for a more concise understanding of the poem. This pre-reading activity creates excellent scaffolding for comprehension.
You can create a slideshow and remove parts allowing student to fill in information that shows comprehension. Students will summarize, predict and infer in an effort to build literacy.
