Product Description
This is a fun two-day mini-unit for Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven."On each of the first three worksheets, students will work in pairs or small groups to turn Poe’s “The Raven” into a modern narrative.

The poem is split onto three worksheets (6 stanzas each).
They can annotate or summarize on the worksheet, and on the back, or a separate piece of paper, write out a narrative version of each stanza, almost like a short story!

I split the poem up into 6-stanza chunks because it’s quite long, and would take more than a class period to do.

When each group is done, you could have the #1s read their “translation” aloud, followed by #2 and #3 groups.

There is a glossary for them to use during summarization/narrative translation.

The exit slips are for assessing students quickly before they leave for the day.

There are notes on Poe’s background if you wanted to do a short lecture on him, too. I've also included a student version of the notes, which requires them to search for info (online, if you don't want to lecture). I do a Poe background activity that goes with the notes with my students (not included in this unit).

The last two pages are for students to create a little art. Have them fill the page surrounding or filling in the raven with words from the poem!

Thanks!
