Product Description
I use this PowerPoint to introduce the motifs, language elements, and themes that I want my students to track throughout the reading of the novel. They are LISTS- not explanations- and the assumption is that students understand the terms prior to beginning the reading, though you may wish to review for them as you talk through the slides.

I require students to record examples from these lists as they read. I have students write down the lists as I talk through the slides, and then choose which elements they personally wish to track as they read. My students are not required to track ALL of them, though I do make sure that all of them get covered. You may wish to have students draw for, sign up for, or assign yourself.

The PP also includes a guided reading exercise of the opening chapter to begin discussion. It is intended as the opener for a full reading of the novel. This introduction has generated excellent student interest in the novel for me. I hope your students enjoy it as well!
