Product Description
This product features an engaging activity that will fit in perfectly with your unit on Edgar Allan Poe or on Halloween!

Students get the chance to create the epitaph for the gravestone of one of the most revered authors in American literature. The activity encourages students to be thoughtful with their knowledge of Poe but also to be creative with their inscriptions. This can be done in or outside of class and also works as a great emergency substitute plan during the month of October. To be festive, I love to give this assignment on the anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's actual death day, October 7! No preparation needed!

Product Includes:

- Complete Assignment Directions
- Scoring Guide
- 3 Templates - 2 blank for use in class, 1 editable template for use on the computer
- 1 Teacher Model


In order for students to gain the most out of this assignment, It is recommended for use in conjunction with the Edgar Allan Poe Scavenger Hunt by Language Arts Excellence.
