Instructional Ideas
  • Use the presentation as a model for learners to create similar slideshows about their own independent reading books
  • Introduce the slides at key moments of the novel, or to provide prior knowledge at the beginning of your novel unit
Classroom Considerations
  • The title of the slideshow includes the novel's themes, but the slides only address aspects of the book's setting and symbols; you'll need to augment with an extended discussion
  • Final slide reveals Brian's rescue, so avoid this part if learners have not reached the end of the book
Pros
  • Provides engaging photographs of the animals and wilderness that Brian encounters
Cons
  • Does not offer much helpful information about the plot, characters, or themes
