This is an interactive pre-reading activity to use before reading "The Cask of Amontillado." Students are introduced to themes in the story and practice making predictions. I designed this for use with Google Classroom, but I have highlighted the GC-related instructions that can easily be erased for teachers that want a paper copy. My students loved this activity and I got even my most reluctant students to participate!! This activity requires students to view and listen to music videos, make predictions, read the poems "A Poison Tree" by William Blake and "After the Killing" (author unknown), study literary devices and themes, and make predictions about "The Cask of Amontillado."
