The goal of this project is for students to examine major characteristics of the HORROR/GOTHIC genre in Poe’s writings. After reading two or more works by Edgar Allan Poe, you can present students with this list of projects. They can pick the one they want to do and show their understanding of Poe at the same time. A grading rubric for the projects is also included.
NOTE: None of the assignments is to simply summarize the poem/story. All must include accurate information. A large portion of the grade will come from showing you understand the poem/story.
