Summary Must have 4-6 bullet points Points should be brief (try to keep it to one line) Be able to explain and expand beyond the bullet points (this may require note cards or a fantastic memory) Bring up setting or setting changes (time, place) Bring up major plot events (Remember – Plot is the pattern of events or main story in a narrative.)
Line Lighter The only thing on the slide will be 2 properly cited passages Be prepared to discuss how they reflect interesting writing (imagery, rhythm, figurative language) Again this may require note cards or an incredibly fluid memory
Character Captain Again – the only thing on this slide will be 2 properly cited passages. Be prepared to tell classmates what the passages reveal about a character’s quality traits The 2 passages/quotes can be applied to two different characters or the same one.
Themes Identify one theme from the your section’s reading Reminder – a theme is a central message or insight into life revealed through a literary work. “Love” is not a theme “Love helps us to overcome obstacles.” could be a theme.
Rubric – what do I really care about Fulfilling each slide’s written requirements Being able to thoroughly explain the summary bullet points, passages, and themes. Higher grades are awarded with well chosen passages, insightful revelations, and well prepared spoken accompaniment
