An in-depth Power Point Presentation on the life and experiences of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain).
The 42-slide Power Point covers his birth, his childhood in Hannibal, Missouri, his experiences in the Civil War, in Nevada, his writing, his family, and the later years of his life. Photos, pictures, and quotes make this a lively and interesting Power Point presentation.
Students are asked to focus on basic questions: What was his childhood like? Why did he choose Mark Twain as a pen name? What were his most famous works and why were they important? And then are asked to use what they have learned to answer an Essential Question: How do you think his life experiences influenced his writing?
This Power Point is perfect for kicking off a unit on "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer," or "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."
The download also comes with a student follow-along guide which can be used to ensure student attention and/or used as an assessment option.
