PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

At some point, most students read the work of American Literary Canon stalwarts Edgar Allen Poe or Nathaniel Hawthorne. However, for some teens it is hard to make a personal connection with literature written more than 150 years ago. The text complexity of the selections are challenging for struggling readers who need close reading support.

This mini-unit encourages teachers and students to examine the content of two notable Dark Romantic authors, Edgar Allen Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne, by way of viewing video clips, annotating works, discussing traits, reviewing assignments and completing assessments. Students will explore specific learning scaffolding, literacy and writing strategies for English Learners and struggling students by undertaking each step in the mini-unit and assessing it critically.

The activities included in the mini-unit model differentiation, student choice, audio-visual support and extension activities for teachers who teach gifted, English Learners and struggling students.

Originally compiled as a professional development project for a doctoral class, the material contains teaching tips and strategies as well as student handouts, links, activities, rubric links and assessments.
