PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product features all the materials you need to assign a compare/contrast essay for Edgar Allan Poe's two famously gruesome tales: "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Black Cat."

For this assignment, students will need to think critically and specifically about the similarities and differences between the two famous stories. A comprehensive chart is provided to prompt students to take a close look at both tales and to think beyond the obvious (like the fact that they are both written by Edgar Allan Poe) and consider the deeper similarities and differences (like plot structure, mental state of the narrators, and elements of suspense) between them. These thoughtfully-constructed materials will help students develop exemplary compare/contrast essays that they can be proud of!

- Complete assignment directions
