Product Description
This resource features a full-length lesson plan, accompanying materials, and creative writing assignment that asks students to delve into the crazed mind of the narrator of Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart." Through an engaging "True/Untrue Storytelling" activity, precise mini-lecture on the unreliable narrator, guiding questions, and follow-up assignment, your students will be able to understand the sometimes daunting concept of the unreliable narrator and discuss how a story is affected when told through the eyes of one. This lesson plan opens up a new world for students as they realize that many of the books, movies, and tv shows that they have read or seen in the past may have been influenced by an unreliable narrator. Thus, not only is this lesson important, it is intrinsically fascinating to students and the "oohs" and "aha" moments that tend to arise from the discussion make it a blast to teach! I am confident that you and your students will love this lesson as much as mine have for years.

Product Includes:

- Meticulously-crafted lesson plan with objectives, materials, warm-up, explanation, application, synthesis, homework, and extension activity
- Student packet of accompanying materials
- “The Tell-Tale Heart” Creative Writing Assignment on Perspective

This activity works well as a part of any Edgar Allan Poe or short story unit. It is assumed that students have read "The Tell-Tale Heart" prior to teaching the lesson.
