Product Description
Help your students learn how to put together a murder mystery short story using the examples, tone, and phrases of Edgar Allan Poe!

Students can use this "how-to" guide to help them develop all the elements of a short story that is also a murder mystery. There are sections to help them decide on the characteristics of their protagonist and their villain so that they can visualize who they are creating. Using this same type of method, students can develop their villain and use these two characters to start to develop the method of murder and the victim. In addition, there are sections where students can decide on phrases to help them develop the setting and an activity where students can choose a group of adjectives to use within the story to increase interest.

There are great graphics that increase student interest and participation in the topic and activity and questions throughout the guide that help students understand the loop holes and issues that are typically seen when students are writing a short story.

By the end of this guide, students are prepared with a visual representation of what a short story needs to include in order to be dynamic and unique while still maintaining the rigors of Common Core curriculum and correct writing and dialogue style, all while introducing students to Edgar Allan Poe's macabre and darkly intriguing voice.

**Please be aware that there are graphics that include blood splatter and drips as well as a graphic of a bloody hand print. Please use caution when giving to younger students.
