The focus of this lesson HOW AND WHY AN AUTHOR WROTE A PARAGRAPH THE WAY THAT THEY DID. Students will learn to ANALYZE THE ORGANIZATION OF A PARAGRAPH such as CHRONOLOGICAL, LOCATION, CLASSIFICATION, ORDER OF IMPORTANT (least-to-most and most-to-least), COMPARE AND CONTRAST, AND CAUSE AND EFFECT. The PowerPoint is done in a warehouse theme where a forklift organizes boxes making the animations pretty fun to interact with. Students can use this tool as a way to assist them in analyzing a paragraph's organization which can be very tough to do for students.
A game called "Got Organization" is included at the end to reinforce newly learned skills.
INCLUDED INSIDE THE POWERPOINT:
*Make printables from the PowerPoint slides to help reinforce student learning.
*I can statements to help students focus their learning.
*Hyperlinked screen to help students "jump" to their area of need.
*Challenging journal questions at the end to prove student understanding.
*Print offs for students to write notes about the different text organizations.
*Student Practice: Students are given practice opportunities to help them reinforce their learning.
This is an ADVANCED POWERPOINT and works for computers that have PowerPoint Version 2010 or 2012.
Due to the large file size I could not get the videos and animations to work on the preview. They will all work on the purchased versions though.
