Teaching Symbolism and Allegory – Introduction PowerPoint and Notes


Total Pages: 7 pages and 12 slides
File Size: 2 MB


This lesson on Symbolism or Allegory can be used with or without Interactive Student Notebooks (ISN). I use it in my Short Stories unit with “Masque of the Red Death” by Edgar Allan Poe, but it is compatible with any text.

What You Get:
1. ISN spread & student sample
2. An anticipatory set using Tootsie Roll Pops (or Blow Pops) to teach students how to analyze a symbol
3. Introductory PPT to help students compare symbolism and allegory
4. Guided notes and student practice for ISNs or as a traditional worksheet

About Your Resource:
Your download is a .zip file that contains a presentation and handouts/foldables. The .pdf of the lesson and worksheets is print-and-go and not editable. You can edit the presentation in its entirety OR use the ready-to-go version. If you plan to edit, you’ll need to download KG Cold Coffee (free for classroom use) or replace the headers with the font of your choice. Instructions for use and copyright information are included in this resource. Feel free to email me at if you have any questions. 🙂
