Narrative Genre

PowerPoint presentations are generally discouraged but may be needed more for this presentation than others (never required). If you prefer to use PowerPoint, use only for materials not available on the course website (e.g., for introduction of your example, notes, and your discussion questions.).

Do not copy and paste materials from course website into PowerPoint. Instead go to website for materials (e.g., term pages, text passages, instructor's discussion questions, objectives, etc.).

3. Preview highlights / features in video scenes (+ preview questions?).

5. Comment, invite comments, and ask questions (e.g.

Above all: How do the scenes you show fit the definition of your narrative genre?
