Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(82)
In this One-Time course, we will be reading, discussing and experiencing the spooky world of Edgar Allan Poe, an American poet with a sordid history (extended after Halloween due to student request!)

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 6
Students will learn the messages of the poem, The Raven. They will also learn biographical information on the author, Edgar Allan Poe. They will learn what it means to call something "American Literature" as well as other works in that genre during the same time in our history. Students will learn how to read literature and respond to it, using context clues, historical author information as well as their own ideas. Students will also find their own unique voice in creating their own brief sample of literature to match the genre as well as the language of the poem.
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
The assessment will be their own written stanza. They will take all that they learned from the course and use it to create text that would fit into the subject matter, time period, language and genre of the poem.
Grades Offered
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will only need their eyes and ears (and creativity) for the class. I have provided the PDF of the poem to our course for review. Students are welcome to read ahead of time, but it is not required.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Edgar Allan Poe's work is, sometimes, considered to be of the "horror" genre of literature. While The Raven is part of his catalogue of work, there are no direct references to horror, but parents should be aware of the reputation of this early American author.
