Product Description
I teach this lesson as part of a larger unit based on stories with surprise endings. Students have learned basics of plot, characterization, and tone and mood, and with “The Black Cat" by Edgar Allan Poe, they practice recognizing the concepts they just learned, as well as elements of Gothic literature.

This lesson is part of the Surprise endings short story unit)!

Other lessons found in the unit are:
Pixar shorts “Knick Knack”, “Geri’s Game”, and “Partly Cloudy” (Individual lesson found here!)
“Lather and Nothing Else” by Hernando Tellez (Individual lesson found here!)
“The Open Window” by Saki (Individual lesson found here!)
