Product Description

This product features all the materials you need to assign a compare/contrast essay for Roald Dahl's "Lamb to the Slaughter" and Edgar Allan Poe's "The Black Cat."

For this assignment, students will need to think critically and specifically about the similarities and differences between the two famous stories of marital strife taken to the extreme. A comprehensive chart is provided to prompt students to take a close look at both tales and to think beyond the obvious (like the fact that they are written by different authors) and consider the deeper similarities and differences (like plot structure, mental state of the narrators, and elements of suspense) between them. These thoughtfully-constructed materials will help students develop exemplary compare/contrast essays that they can be proud of!

Product Includes:

- Complete assignment directions

- Specific similarities/differences chart with 16 story components

- Venn diagram template

- Essay graphic organizer (Block Method)

- Rubric

- Teacher key for chart

This assignment works well in any short story unit but I like to use it near Halloween when creepy is the way to go!
