This unit is based on the elements of Gothic Literature and short stories, which is a PowerPoint I will include as another post. To work with these topics, I chose Edgar Allan Poe as the example author for this unit. We've used multiple works by him and analyzed each one utilizing the Gothic elements.
Also included is the argumentative essay the students will be working on simultaneously. They are to choose a controversial topic and argue one side. All of the requirements are in the Final Essay Packet.
There are also weekly vocabulary lists and quizzes containing words from the SATs and words students will encounter in the reading we'll be doing for class.
The final test is also included and has a study guide, review Jeopardy game, and answer keys for the teacher.
Please know that you can alter this for any grade level! All lesson plans are in accordance with the MA State Frameworks. For every student handout, there is a teacher handout with all of the answers!
I hope you enjoy teaching this unit as much as I did! (I think this one might be my favorite! :) )
