If you are using William Armstrong's Sounder, with your classes, you will appreciate these four PowerPoint decks: 1) Chain Gangs; 2) The Story of Joseph; 3) David and Goliath; 4) Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Throughout the novel, Armstrong makes many reference to the aforementioned three Bible stories. Not all students are familiar with the Old Testament stories, so I find that it is helpful to review them along with this novel. And the father in the story is sent to work on a chain gang, so I share the story of Robert E. Burns in a PowerPoint deck, linking fiction with nonfiction. I have included an audio file of Sam Cooke's "Working on a Chain Gang," which students enjoy.
