Product Description
Students always think they’ve come up with the perfect title—until I do this lesson. Then I can see their creative wheels spinning and nine times out of ten, they settle on a completely new title.

These interactive Google Slides contain titles and explanations of those titles from the following stories:

A Name of a Character Title |“Priscilla and the Wimps” by Richard Peck

A Theme Title | “The Lesson” by Toni Cade Bambara

A Figure Out What is Really Is/Means Title |“Poison” by Roald Dahl

A Location Title That Has a Deeper Meaning |“On the Bridge” by Todd Strasser

A Dramatic Irony Title | “Charles” by Shirley Jackson

A Metaphor/Symbol Title |“Black Holes and Basketball Sneakers” by Lori Aurelia Williams

A Figure Out What is Really Is/Means Title |“The Stolen Party” by Liliana Heker

A Phrase or Word a Character Repeats Title |“Way Too Cool” by Brenda Woods

A Sound Title |“A Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury

A Begin with a Preposition Title |“To Build a Fire” by Jack London

An Opening You Want to Try But is Not in the Models

I normally go through the slides with the students and have them type Yes, No, or Maybe in the slides depending on if they think they can make a title like that model work for their own narrative. When students have decided on the titles they would like to try (I have them try at least three), they delete the unneeded slides. This means less scrolling for me when I’m grading.

I have purposefully not included page numbers on the Google Slides so that you may delete or add narrative title models as needed.

I have also included the PDF so you may print if needed. (There always seems to be one student who, for whatever reason, can’t use a computer that day.)
