Please click here to access our Poe Project—I helped create this for a teacher at CRHS, and it will work beautifully for your exploration of Poe.  We have two timelining tools you can use as part of this project:

1.  Timeliner software (on the programs menu)
2.  http://xtimeline.com/ 

We will review this tonight as a class to help you get started.  You can also go to the Story Collection section of the CHS Media Center and look for books with Poe’s short stories.  I will point out this section of the library to you tonight.

I will have a project planning sheet for you tonight to help you plan out your work on this project.  It is imperative you attend nightly this week!  Thank you!

Mrs. Hamilton
