Students will use context clues to determine meaning of words, identify and apply knowledge of literary devices and analyze the impact of specific word choices on meaning using works of Edgar Allan Poe (The Tell-Tale Heart and The Raven). This 4 day unit is designed using the 4MAT model where students connect, attend, imagine, inform, practice, extend, refine, and perform. Be prepared to be creeped out and learn how to analyze Poe's stories and poems to better understand just how creepy and sad he intended them to be!
