Reviewer Comments:

This wonderful resource on Edgar Allen Poe provides an immediately usable, complete unit on Poe’s short stories. The introduction begins with a modernized (relevant) Homer Simpson video version of a parody of The Raven; other videos of Poe’s work are offered. Assignments provide three engaging activities where the student responds in an e-portfolio posting – working with questions, timeline, theme, plot map, scavenger hunt and essays. A guiding rubric is also included. Informative resources about Poe are provided as well.
