Whether you need an easy print-and-go sub plan that provides a good yield of learning for your students or simply need a video to play as you get caught up on your grading, this one-hour lesson is ready to work for you! Just print the two-page student handout and cue up A&E Biography’s “The Mystery of Edgar Allan Poe,” a high-quality 43-minute episode of the popular cable channel series. (Video link included.)
The video covers the major events of Edgar Allan Poe’s tragic life and includes small slices of his famous works, including “The Raven” and “Annabel Lee.”
This 5-page PDF download includes:
• A single-page of suggested lesson procedures you can leave for your sub.
• Link to the free video content hosted on the Biography website.
• A two-page attractively designed question sheet for students to use not only as they view the video, but also to reflect on deeper-thinking questions once the video has ended.
• A two-page detailed answer key to help guide class discussion when reviewing answers and make grading papers a snap.
Please note: This video includes content that is entirely appropriate for the classroom; however, there are two gothic art pieces included that very briefly show bare breasts. If this would be a concern for your student population, please preview the full video here before purchasing these companion lesson materials.
