This 7-page (1 week) day-by-day lesson plan activity pack for incorporating Edgar Allan Poe's classic American horror masterpiece "The Tell-Tale Heart" in an ELA course curriculum is a must-view.
This lesson plan pack moves students from the lower levels of Bloom's Taxonomy of remembering and comprehending toward the highest levels, with applying, analyzing, evaluating, AND synthesizing/creating in various and engaging ways. The reading assessments involved here work consistently within those higher Bloom's Taxonomy levels, as well as the Common Core Standards for 21st Century skills: critical thinking, collaboration and communication (of various types!), problem-solving, creativity, and innovation!
Here, you'll find:
a.) daily detailed lesson plans
b.) printables, including the following~
*an anticipatory set of questions
*analyzing suspense activity
*prediction questions to engage the reader while enjoying the text
*analyzing imagery activity
*plot diagram analysis
*short essay question (with student choice!)
EVERYTHING is a printable!
I'd love to hear how you're using this in your classroom, as well as any further feedback you wish to provide. I have used these lesson plans with tremendous success with my classes in the recent past. You'll also find a PowerPoint presentation bundle for using with each class, day-by-day, at a low rate in my TpT store if you're interested in utilizing these materials interactively, daily with your class(es).
Enjoy! Thanks very much for visiting my store.
