This product pairs with my "Gothic Literature Introduction PPT." Use these products together to create a complete literature unit with reading and writing.
This writing assignment is for an in-class essay in which students must explain how the short stories/poems that we read in this unit fall into the Gothic Literature genre.
You can use this assignment with any Gothic lit texts, but I use:
The Fall of the House of Usher
The Pit and the Pendulum
The Tell-Tale Heart
The Devil and Tom Walker
Writing assignment requires that students use direct quotations to support their claims and in-text citations.
