Stay Connected from Head to Poe

Big Read Teacher’s Guide

We’ll be posting curricula for all ages throughout the year, and decided to kick off Big Read Connects Tucson by sharing the Poe Teacher’s Guide provided by The Big Read.

This Big Read Teacher’s Guide contains ten lessons to lead you through an introduction to the poetry and short stories of Edgar Allan Poe. Each lesson has four sections: a focus topic, discussion activities, writing exercises, and homework assignments.  All lessons dovetail with the state language arts standards required in the fiction genre.

The Big Read Reader’s Guide deepens your exploration with interviews, booklists, timelines, and historical information. This guide and syllabus will allow you to have fun with your students while introducing them to the work of a great American author.
