Product Description

☠  Thank you for downloading this FREE mini-unit!  ☠

This is a great introduction to Edgar Allan Poe's poetry for your students!

You will get:

  • Three worksheets on which students will work in pairs or small groups to paraphrase/summarize a section of Poe’s “The Raven” into a modern narrative. 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 three 6-stanza chunks because it’s quite long, and would take more than a class period to do.

  • Glossary for students to use during summarization/narrative translation

  • Blank note sheets for use on Poe’s background if you wanted to do a short lecture on him or just have students do their own research on computers or iPads.

  • Figurative language handout that requires students to find examples of simile, metaphor, allusion, and personification. Comes with KEY.

  • The last page is for students to create a little art. Have them decorate the page surrounding the bird, or fill in the raven with words from the poem, or whatever they want!

Have fun!

Thank you,
