Product Description
Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

This is a fun, engaging mini-project in which students act as newspaper staff writer and illustrator for Poe's most gruesome tales, "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Black Cat." The project is differentiated for multiple learning styles and is a fun way to bring the stories of Edgar Allan Poe to life! I recommend giving this assignment after reading both stories as close to Halloween as possible. This assignment works just as well in class as it does for homework.

Product Includes:

- Comprehensive project directions
- Scoring Guide
