Who or What Killed Edgar Allen Poe?
Edgar Allen Poe’s death has been the subject of speculation for over 150 years. Have your students meet the suspects, compare and contrast eyewitness statements of his symptoms to current medical knowledge, and write persuasive pieces to promote their theory of who or what killed Poe.
Rubrics, a number of extension activities and extra credit assignments are included (in editable format) as well as character dossiers of people in Poe’s life, the lesson plan and other materials your students need to conduct their own investigations and arrive at their own conclusions.
