Product Description
No one is immune to the creepy and bizarre world of Edgar Allan Poe; his short story, "The Tell Tale Heart," has disturbed generations and influenced such literary greats as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ray Bradbury, and Stephen King. Combining the creepiness of Poe's classic tale with students' affinity for drawing and working with partners, this lesson will keep your students actively engaged in their "unpacking" of key elements of plot and arranging them in chronological order before creating an illustrated timeline. You can discuss motive, characterization, tone, and mood with this assignment as well. Expect your students to be active participants in learning for at least ninety minutes, excluding the time needed to read and discuss "The Tell Tale Heart" itself. All enveloped under the ELA Common Core Standard RL.6.5: "Analyze how a particular sentence, chapter, scene, or stanza fits into the overall structure of a text and contributes to the development of the theme, setting, or plot." Perfect for Halloween, for differentiated instruction, group work, and an all-around terrific vehicle to teach plot and chronology, your students will love this, and so will you! Best, Rockermom
