Product Description
I developed these close reading activities to help my middle school students make the transition from highly structured and collaborative close reading activities to independent use of these strategies. I chose two challenging E.A. Poe stories - "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Black Cat" - and developed activities that moved quickly from a day of guided and collaborative work to silent reading and guided choice of close reading strategies. I have included the text of these stories (they are pubic domain) so that students can "read with their pencils." If you do all three activities in succession, it will take about 7 class periods. Please be aware, if you have never read "the Black Cat," that is is exceptionally gruesome, even for Poe (my middle schoolers love it). - Rae Galeazzi
