Today I reviewed the suspicious circumstances of Edgar Allan Poe’s death.  We spoke about all of the different causes of death attributed to Poe, and why that might be.  After, I showed the class some funny and serious obituaries online.

Finally, I asked them to write an obituary outlining some of the highlights of Poe’s life, and then make up or choose a way Poe died.  The assignment was due at the end of class.
