PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There are two activities in this Edgar Allan Poe biography viewing guide to introduce your students to Poe, to supplement your Poe unit or American Literature dark romanticism authors unit, as an emergency sub plan, or even for a quick Halloween lesson. The activities can be used consecutively or independently.

Included:
- Video viewing guide and links to several free video biographies online. The viewing guide is written generally enough so that it can be used with any biography over Poe. The questions included on the viewing guide are more open-ended, broad type questions that allow student to watch and digest the info from the film and note what they remember or infer to be significant about Poe. They do require students view the film in order to answer the questions, but the questions are not “nitpicky” questions that require students to scavenger hunt through the documentary writing down something at every frame. I like for students to watch and be on their toes, but also enjoy watching as well. Answers are provided.
- The Footprints of Poe: Allusions to Poe in Popular Culture Activity. Ever since his death in 1849, Poe’s legend has grown. He has become a pop-icon - a status usually reserved for movie stars or musicians. In this activity, students match allusions to Poe with his great works! This is an excellent way to follow up the video. Answers are provided.
- Super Simple Sub Sheet
