After Reading "The Black Cat," The Fall of the House of Usher," and/or "The Pit and the Pendulum," students can work together or independently to identify the Gothic elements in the stories to better understand how Poe achieves the "single effect." There are four charts: one that includes both "the Black Cat" and "The Pit and the Pendulum," one that includes only "The Black Cat," one that includes only "The Pit and the Pendulum," and one that includes only "The Fall of the House of Usher."

The suggested time/teaching duration is 1-2 class periods per story. This can be modified, depending on your needs. For example, you may wish to complete a chart or part of a chart together as a class, or you may wish to spend more time discussing answers.

Extensive answers are provided for all three stories.
