Description

Use "The Cask of Amontillado," Edgar Allan Poe’s creepy tale of twisted justice, to teach your students the elements of literary analysis. This two-day lesson includes a 14-question deep-thinking exercise (with detailed answer key/class discussion starters) and a Storytelling Arc handout (with key) to emphasize exposition, conflict, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. Finally, the download also includes a link to a short anticipatory video clip that will build students’ interest in the American Gothic tale.

All student handouts are included in both PDF and Google Drive formats.

This lesson is best for advanced middle school or high school students.
