Product Description
This is a brief PowerPoint presentation to accompany the text. I use this slideshow to activate schema, calling on students' previous knowledge of literary terms, and to lead an analysis of the poem on which the story is based.

The slideshow includes two provocative images to facilitate visualization, as you can see in the thumbnails. A very brief biography of the author is included as well. The slideshow also covers relevant literary terminology, including personification, theme, and allusion (to the Sara Teasdale poem).
