PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Though Edgar Allan Poe is always a student favorite,“The Pit and the Pendulum” proves to be one of Poe’s most challenging short stories. I designed this lesson with engaging activities that not only help students to better understand the content, but also to make this text more enjoyable.

I use these lessons with all of my students, but the graphic novel activity (link included for a FREE online graphic novel!) is especially helpful for differentiation. My ESL students and struggling readers get the adaptation they need to succeed.

All of these activities are Common Core aligned and require textual evidence to complete.

You will receive:
2 Creative Activities: One of these involve a critique and introduction to a free online graphic novel of “The Pit and the Pendulum.” The other focuses on finding symbolism in the story.
1 Corresponding informational Text Comparison with answer key
1 Detailed Teachers Note to explain each activity
