Product Description
I created this PowerPoint to introduce my 8th grade students to the novel The House of the Scorpion. I present author, setting, and character background, brief quotes from each of the first five chapters, important vocabulary, and some essential questions to consider as we read. I also include cultural, historical, and/or scientific descriptions of terms like cloning, opium, chupacabras, laudanum, etc.
Finally, I introduce major themes and specific real-world connections to use with this story, including six movies.
Other products I have created to use with this book: six detailed quizzes that cover the entire novel, teacher's guide Cornell Notes for the entire novel, and a student template for Cornell Notes. Final essay topics will be out soon!
