PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who Said It? Students read short story passages and determine whether the writing is the work of Edgar Allan Poe or Stephen King. Students study descriptive narrative writing and compare and contrast the two writers’ styles. I use this activity during Edgar Allan Poe Week to get students engaged in the curriculum.

Teachers may use the identification prompts in several ways:
• Whole class discussion of each prompt giving evidence of why the student thinks it is Poe’s writing or King’s writing.
• Whole class quiz using powerpoint
• Activity to celebrate Edgar Allan Poe Week
• Small group discussion of the selections and oral report by the recorder giving reasons for the group’s choices
• Fun class activity before break days or end of semester
• Fun class activity after assessment testing
• Kickoff for Gothic Literature Unit
• Writing prompt challenge to write a short story using description and narration to draw reader in
• Compare and contrast of the two author’s writing
• Ask students to give an example of a specific description from each passage
• Substitute plan
