Metropolis 1984 Visual Summary

I wrote an article for the English Teacher’s Association journal mETAphor last year where I mentioned that I had a PowerPoint available on my blog. Naturally, I am finally getting around to publishing the PowerPoint. Here it is: metropolis-summary-slides-end.

The idea’s one I’ve used before. It’s about using summary skills to deepen students’ understandings of complex text. The task is simple: choose six key screenshots from the second-last chapter of Metropolis and relate them to the rubric. The PowerPoint has a model, a guided activity and shots for some independent work.
