Product Description
This week long lesson plan dives headfirst into the erratic world of a narrator and follows him as he visits an old friend, who is even more erratic. Throughout the week, students learn to appreciate the significance of imagery, recognize symbols in the piece, learn about tone and mood and how that contributes to a feeling of suspense, and read about common interpretations of the text. Students have written assignments, partner work, group work, and independent work throughout the week, with a final write-up discussing which interpretation they believe is the right one, using text evidence to support that claim.

This product proves you with everything you need to explain the nuances of "The Fall of the House of Usher" and help students appreciate this complex but masterful short story.

This product includes:
**An author biography
**Vocabulary terms and definitions
**Scripts for all days of class
**Handouts and Graphic Organizers
**Multiple types of activities
**An optional activity you can have your students do during a 6th class period
