Product Description
CITING STRONG EVIDENCE IS MADE EASY WITH THIS UNIT FROM EDGAR ALLAN POE'S "TELL TALE HEART." NO PREP- JUST PRINT AND COPY. Throughout this unit, students will engage in analysis of text and development of strong evidence to present for the Judge and Jury Socratic Seminar.

The Judge and Jury Socratic Seminar takes evidence to the next level by having a jury of students evaluate the strongest evidence presented on three central topics in "Tell Tale Heart":

-Prove the narrator is sane or insane.

-Should the narrator represent himself as a credible witness or is he an unreliable witness?

-Is the narrator guilty by fault of murder or not guilty by extenuating circumstances?

The "Create an Essay" activity requires students to evaluate multiple evidence paragraphs to build three evidence paragraphs. Then, include a connecting introduction and conclusion.

This unit includes:

-Common Core Alignment
-10 minute timed writing with visual and auditory cues to promote prediction
-Audio and vocabulary recommendations during reading of the text
-Quote analysis after reading the text
-Clinical Record Review to analyze the narrator with textual evidence
-A guided note-taker for the 3 topics to prepare for the Socratic Seminar
-Specific and structured directions and guidance to implement the Socratic Seminar
-Create an essay activity to extend use of strong evidence while making claims
