Product Description
Poe’s Science Fiction Stories

Did you know that Poe was a pioneer in science fiction writing? Want to add some new less-known stories to your study of Edgar Allan Poe? In this unit, five small groups may study one of Edgar Allan Poe’s five science fiction stories and give a report to the class. Or the whole class may study the stories together. Students may review the main elements in a science fiction or horror story and brainstorm ideas to write their own. A Peer Editing chart is included for student partners to edit the first draft. Students will turn in the first draft, peer editing worksheet, and final draft. A teacher evaluation sheet is added.

Short stories may be shared during Author's Chair.

You will receive:
