This 24 slide powerpoint offers an advanced analysis of the background of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights. It includes:
1.) Background of Victorian Time Period
2.) Background if the Industrial Revolution
3.) Biographical Information on Emily Bronte
4.) Literary Criticism of the Novel
The presentation is set up lecture style with each slide containing notes for the teacher explaining each point in the presentation in depth. You can print off the presentation in note format and then read the provided notes with the presentation. There is no additional prep that needs to be done.
Also, there is a link to a youtube video in the notes that describes the difficult life children of the Industrial Revolution has. Some years I have time to show it, others I don't--but students have always been impacted by the information provided in the video.
The literary analysis section is meant do give upon completion of the book as it has several concepts that allow for classroom discussion. Although the other sections can be done with a CP class, this section is specifically designed for an honors or AP class as it focuses on studying the novel through a psychological lens and contains complex interpretations (such as Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange as examples of synecdoche).
