PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use the classic short story, “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant, to teach your students the elements of literary analysis. This two-day lesson plan includes the full story with attractive illustrations, an 8-question deep-thinking exercise (with detailed answer key, of course), an interactive Prezi lecture to help your students learn how to analyze text as they connect the author’s setting to the character development of Mathilde Loisel, and an optional homework writing assignment.

This lesson is best for advanced middle school or high school students.

A dazzling alternative to Powerpoint, Prezi allows presenters to “zoom” to their next slide and the modern design captivates a teen audience. Students love the Prezi style and beg me all the time to make more of them. You can check out Prezi for free at www.prezi.com. I also have two free Prezis at my teacher store, if you want to take a look. You don’t need any special equipment or software to use Prezi. If your computer can view a YouTube video, then you can enjoy a Prezi.

Prezis run on both SMARTBoards and regular classroom computers with projectors.

Click the orange “Download Preview” button at the top of the page to take a closer look. I hope you enjoy this fresh approach to lecturing that’s sure to keep your students’ attention.

Note: Due to the “zoom” animations, this zip file is large. The download will take a few minutes, so please be patient. When you get the folder, open it and launch the “Prezi.” Just ignore the other items; they’re needed to run the show. Your computer will ask if you want to “open” the web-created file. No worries; there’s no virus, so just open and enjoy. For full-screen viewing, be sure to click on the small icon in the lower right-hand corner (just like on YouTube).
