Product Description
This is a PowerPoint for an introduction on Edgar Allan Poe--an author that even the most reluctant student will be intrigued by. Included is a two day PowerPoint which introduces the elements of theme in Poe's work, the life and times of Edgar Allan Poe, the formalist approach of analyzing literature, a Close reading of "Annabel Lee," and a culminating obituary assignment on either Poe or his wife, Virginia Clemm. Students do not sit passively, however! They must brainstorm the darker elements of theme, take two column notes on the events and impact of these events on Poe's life, a discussion using the formalist approach on how Poe's own life as portrayed in his fiction, a 6 word memoir on Poe's life, a Close reading of "Annabel Lee," a discussion on the elements of poetry, an analysis of actual obituaries to gain an understanding of types of writing, the creation of a criteria chart on the obituary assignment, the obituary assignment itself, and a wrap up presentation rubric. This PowerPoint will help you sail through two days of prep free planning at a minimum, if not three for a day for presentations, and will be the beginning of a life time connection to one of most enduring authors and poets: Edgar Allan Poe. Enjoy and please let me know how this works for your students and for you. Best best, Rockermom
