Product Description
This is THE lesson plan for students who need a break from writing! Using Poe's "The Tell Tale Heart," and with the overarching ELA Common Core Standard for reading literature specific to tone, students are given a creative drawing task which also requires three exact words, phrases, and/or sentences Poe uses to create tone for the short story that both students' illustrations and, more importantly, their own mood while reading this classic macabre American short story. Perfect for the creepy feel of Halloween, or, for Poe knows no boundaries, any time of year. The "Father of the Short Story" coupled with a creepy drawing assignment will lure even the most resistant student into the realm of craft and structure. "Here, here....!!" This is the creative lesson plan you need to accompany Poe's classic. Best, Rockermom
