This is a pack of activities for The House of Seven Gables that you will surely value (first off, nice call in teaching this ignored masterpiece of literary genius). Here you will find three different pre-reading/ historical research activities that will help you get your young readers in the proper frame of mind to enjoy Hepzibah & co. Next, you will find two quizzes to use during the reading of the text, in addition to a final test, all of which cover a wide range of levels of Bloom's. In addition, I have constructed a nice comparison & contrast chart to use in conjunction w/ viewing the 1940 Vincent Price film version of the text. Also, included here is a helpful research project that the students can complete while reading the book; it offers up research ideas for various historical aspects of the novel, through which the students will create an oral presentation. Finally, two different essay rubrics are included with prompt choices offered.
