For US students with a processing or other reading challenges, I encourage you to use the following link to submit an application with the National Library Service and Library of Congress to acquire free resources which may be helpful for this class: Another free and valuable resource for students who learn differently is:
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Some of the imagery, language and content is violent and/or graphic.  Poe's stories and poetry are classic literature, but confront death and murder.
The Best of Poe by: Edgar Allan Poe.
