FREE LANGUAGE ARTS POWERPOINT - "Elements of Literature PowerPoint"

Elements of Literature PowerPoint

by Connie Casserly
Grades 6-12

Elements of Literature Powerpoint

This FREE ten slide presentation enables teachers to clarify with their students how to analyze any fiction or narrative non-fiction in depth. Each slide offers a visual lesson for Setting, Characters, Plot/Conflict, The World the Author Creates, Theme, Symbols, Tone and Literary Terms. Students learn the importance of each element, and see how each one works with the others to create a complete whole.

This presentation can be viewed as a new lesson, a prior learning summary, or as reinforcement before analyzing a short story or a novel.   Teachers can accompany a discussion of one of the elements with the coordinating slide, too, instead of viewing all ten over a few class periods. The material in this PowerPoint deepens ELA and creative writing students' knowledge, understanding and analytic skills because it shows them how the elements of literature create the story's structure.

By using this presentation in conjunction with any literature study, teachers are ensuring that their students are building strong comprehension homes. This slide presentation addresses the Common Core Anchor Standards for Literature (R1, 2,3, 5, 6 and 10) and Bloom's Taxonomy's Remember/Understand, Apply, Analyze and Evaluate thinking skills.

Happy Teaching,
