The Raven: Analysis and Assessment

Included is a series of resources (at least 2 x 55 min lessons) in which KS3 students are challenged to understand and analysis the language of Edgar Allen Poe in his Gothic poem ‘The Raven’. There is a PPT which guides students through the poem and activities. In addition, there is a speaking and listening assessment based on a group performance of the poem (or an extract of it as it is long!) and peer/teacher assessment sheets. This leads into a task analysing the language of ‘The Raven’. I also highly recommend using part of The Simpsons S02 E03 ‘Treehouse of Horror’ Episode in which it provides an interpretation of the poem which is narrated in full by James Earl Jones and really conveys the atmosphere well however this is not included (you may be able to find on Youtube but most likely would require purchasing). Edit, adapt, use and enjoy as always.
