Comparison and Contrast - Two Short Stories
For this lesson, students will write a comparison and contrast paper about two short stories they read by Edgar Allan Poe.
This can also be done in class and as a homework assignment.
First, you will need to have students choose two short stories by Edgar Allan Poe.
They need to think about setting, characters, themes, and plots as they read their short stories and take notes.
After that, they need to write a paper comparing and contrasting the two short stories that Edgar Allan Poe wrote.
When they have completed their paper, you can collect them and grade them.
The students can do this as a class assignment or as a homework assignment since they have stories to read and a paper to write.
You can grade the students on how well they understood what they read and wrote in their papers. You can also grade them on grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraph structure.
