Poe for Halloween

Today, on Halloween, we will honor Edgar Allen Poe.

We will read the “The Tell Tale Heart” aloud in class. Students annotated the story as Borg explained it and wrote a summary.

We listened to “The Black Cat” in class Tuesday, 11/01. Students took notes and highlighted evidence of the following and wrote a summary. Here is a copy of the story.

  • madness
  • guilt
  • alcoholism
  • “supernatural” vs. coincidence
  • sin/evil
  • personality or character changes

Students will also read “The Pit & the Pendulum”  this week.

They should expect to take a quiz over these stories Thursday or Friday.
