Product Description
This PowerPoint is intended to be a motivational resource for teenagers to read and get more interested in culture and the world around them.

The presentation begins with literary references in Pop Culture (TV, film, music) and then continues with Art references and History references found in today's media.

Where do we find these allusions? In the presentation, there are examples from the following:

TV
Friends (Of Mice and Men joke, clip in presentation)
The Simpsons (several parodied works of art)
30 Rock (Hapsburg royalty joke)

Music
Lana Del Ray (A Clockwork Orange reference)
Led Zeppelin (Lord of the Rings reference)
Mumford and Sons (Much Ado About Nothing reference)
The Lonely Island (US history reference)

Film
Inception (Greek history/mythology reference)
Django Unchained (Gainsborough painting reference)
Moulin Rouge (use of painter Toulouse Lautrec as a character)

Hopefully it inspires your kids to do more independent reading over the break.
