On this slide, you will provide a BRIEF summary of the main details that occur in your section
This slide is not meant to “catch up” any individuals who didn’t read your section. It is mainly to remind the class of the most important plot or thematic points of the section prior to your presentation.
As an audience, it is your responsibility to have read to the end of the section in order to participate in the discussion
It often helps to draw the class toward your thesis statement through a few key sentences leading up to your argument.
On this slide, you will include the introduction paragraph
For example: In Western society, history dictates that the dominant group – white, upper-class, heterosexual, able-bodied men - occupies a social location of power. By this definition, anything “other” is disempowered and these individuals must face obstacles that stand in the way of self-actualization. The elderly and young are often considered incapable, dependent and thus unable to survive without a helping hand. Similarly, women and people of colour have been distrusted by the dominant group as capable bodies.
In The Book of Negroes, Lawrence Hill shatters the stereotypes of traditionally marginalized groups to demonstrate that true strength is not defined by colour or gender. Through the protagonist, AminataDiallo, the reader learns that when facing seemingly insurmountable odds, survival is two part: one needs courage in the face of immediate danger and strength to fight against the status quo, in order to tell the story to future generations in hopes of social change.
In the following slides, each group member will prove the thesis statement using a different ECD.
You may use Point, Proof, Analysis to identify the ECD, the quotation, and analysis from the perspective of your literary criticism.
Your delivery of the argument must be engaging. DO NOT simply write the paragraph and read it to the class. Talk to the class. Engage the class. Keep us interested and willing to participate in the discussion.
Each group member is responsible for 2-3 discussion questions to be worked into each slide or at the end.
