"Nevermore" has there been a more engaging PowerPoint for Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven." Presentation hits Common Core objectives as students engage in building background, vocabulary review, deep thinking comprehension questions, and a culminating activity where students make their own symbol crest. PowerPoint contains built-in differentiation for remedial or ELL classes.* A perfect presentation for an upcoming evaluation as you and your students will perform like literary stars.
*Text in red shows differentiation for lower-level classes.

Terrific Teacher Tip: Teach basic literary terms, such as conflict, setting, protagonist, and theme with Foldables. Have students keep their Literary Terms Foldable handy when analyzing literature. Encourage them to access the academic vocabulary when answering discussion questions.
