This 125-slide PowerPoint is aligned with Common Core Standards and is a great tool for guiding students through a more in-depth textual analysis of Tangerine by Edward Bloor. Each chapter is marked by a slide featuring a plot diagram and a summary of the action in that chapter. Additional slides review key passages and push students to deeper analysis, with a strong emphasis on making inferences, understanding the major themes and symbolism in the novel, and identifying figurative language. Each slide also features teacher notes with the answers to all questions that are posed on the slides and additional background information to help with student comprehension. The PowerPoint is organized by chapter to make it easy and quick to use. Slides can be used for bellringers, discussion starters, timed writing prompts, and review.
Please download the preview file to see the first four chapters.
