EXPLORE THE EDGAR ALLAN POE MASTERPIECE "TELL TALE HEART" WITH INTERACTIVE LEARNING. NO FANCY LOCKS OR PROPS NEEDED. Not only will this escape room allow students to interact with crucial textual evidence, but also invite students to close read documents associated with the grisly murder in "Tell Tale Heart."
NOW INCLUDED IN THIS PRODUCT IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE ESCAPE ROOM TO AIDE TEACHERS IN GATHERING THE BIG PICTURE PRIOR TO SETTING UP THE ESCAPE ROOM.
The escape room is separated into 3 parts. Part 1: Patient Analysis walks students thorough an insane asylum portfolio to examine characterization. It also involves students in cipher decoding while examining evidence in Part 2: Burden of Proof and Part 3: Summary of Findings. Students will focus on claim and evidence through text and video analysis without feeling like they are doing classwork.
Included in this product are several versions of the escape room, so you can realistically pull off an escape room in a secondary classroom without students revealing passwords to friends.
JUST PRINT, ORGANIZE THE SECTIONS, AND GO. The only things you will need are computer or phone access to watch the video and some folders (file or construction paper) to separate Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. An optional online lock is provided in the product, but not required that you use it if you don't have computer access.
