  1. The SuperHERO Teacher Brittany Wheaton

    “My 8th grade students do a Poe unit in October called PoeTober. I love this resource because it gives them differentiated activities that go beyond the usual reading comprehension quiz. My students are always very engaged in the activities found in this resource. I love the choice board quizzes that give students a choice, and I think it’s great to have differentiated options for activities to meet students at different levels and accommodations.” -Helen A.
    “Great resource! This will really help get a better understanding of Poe and make this poetry unit a lot more interesting for my students!” -Rebecca P.
