Powerpoint Presentation on Literary Genres - This is a powerpoint presentation on genres that I created and still use in the library to teach students about the different types of genres.  You are welcomed to use it!  When I use the Powerpoint, I will read from selected titles that are mentioned in the powerpoint or will show a short video clip about a book if it is available from South Carolina Streamline.  Click on the link below.  Again, this is a very large file with animations.  You may wish to right click and "save as".
