Prezi is a great alternative to Powerpoint presentations in your classroom. These presentations feature fluid animation that captures your students' attention. Overall, I have found these presentations to be far more effective than a standard presentation in my classes.
Here is a link to a shortened, preview version of the Prezi. Please copy and paste the following link into your browser for a preview of animation:
I use this particular Prezi along with research paper instruction. The Prezi covers a technique for formulating research paper body paragraphs called TIQAT, which is a modified version of the TIQA formula than many teachers use for literary analysis instruction. This presentation will help your students develop clear, well-structured body paragraphs in their papers.
To play the full Prezi, simply download the zip file and extract to your computer. You will be able to play the prezi without any software or prezi account.
