This unit was always a hit. With interactive activities, students explore both Edgar Allan Poe's "The Black Cat" and Michael Jackson's "Thriller." They analyze both texts while talking dark romanticism, superstition, and Freud's "Return of the Repressed." This unit includes an activity that reminds students of Twitter, an activity that teaches characterization, a fun paper assignment, and much more. It is slated to last for two weeks but could easily last for a little longer.
