This project is a great way to introduce students to the one and only EDGAR ALLAN POE! Students are required to conduct research on Poe's background. Multi-genre techniques are emphasized, as student are required to create a poster detailing information such as Poe's family background, interesting facts, photos, a theme song, and more!
Task two of this project has students create a coat of arms of their very own. This particular task pairs extremely well with "The Cask of Amontillado" short story by Poe.
MLA citation is required for this project, and multiple Common Core State Standards are achieved.
