Product Description
This is a fun and stress-free way for students to learn about close reading. Students need to learn first about allusions to other literature and symbols. Once they have that, read Poe's fascinating poem together. Model how to do a close reading on one of the stanzas. Then, I count up and down the rows of my class to 16 or 17. Then, again. In this way, students are quickly partnered with someone they may not typically choose to work with. Obviously, this is just one way to do this. Depending on their number, students tackle one of the stanzas of the poem. This handout guides them toward a strong close reading. Lastly, students share their findings with the class!
