Product Description
"The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allan Poe can be a difficult short story to read. Poe uses large words, and this particular story is very long. Students can get lost. Therefore, this lesson includes an abridged version of "The Fall of the House of Usher." I took out parts that were repetitive, wordy, or unnecessary to deliver a much easier to understand version about half the size of the original.

This lesson includes the following:

Lesson instructions that include a bell ringer and trailer clip link to interest students in Poe and this short story.

Abriged version of "The Fall of the House of Usher" plus Poe biographical sketch
