PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use “The Black Cat” by American Gothic/Dark Romantic writer Edgar Allan Poe to teach your students the elements of literary analysis, get them thinking deeply about the short story's text, and provide opportunities for real-world connections to this grisly story via a 2009 newspaper article (link included) and critical reading activity. This two-day lesson plan includes a beautifully illustrated copy of the story, a 10-question deep-thinking exercise (with detailed answer key, of course), and a real-world informational text activity to engage and challenge your students. As a bonus, there’s also a 17-minute video (link included) version of the tale.

Due to the graphic nature of Poe’s story, these lesson materials were built with high school students in mind. Middle school students are likely too young to handle the thick language and disturbing content of Poe’s story.
