Product Description
This product contains engaging supplemental worksheets for The Tell-Tale Heart that can be used as in-class activities or for homework. The download includes:

- A pre-reading activity that consists of a full color "word cloud" depicting the 150 most frequently used words from the story. The larger the word in the cloud, the more frequent it is in the story. The guiding questions require students to use this cloud to make inferences prior to reading.

- A newspaper article that presents research to hypothesize the cause of Poe's mysterious death. This is an excellent activity for exploring the author as well as using non-fiction text to supplement a fictional short story.

- A comparison activity that compares the short story with Edvard Munch's famous painting, "The Scream." This activity focuses heavily on mood and tone, and how they are developed in a work of fiction.

- A literary analysis essay that focuses on suspense and how it builds throughout the plot of The Tell-Tale Heart.

*All four activities are Common Core aligned and use authentic texts to supplement the short story!
