This activity requires the students to rotate to 6 stations in order to annotate their copy of "The Tell-Tale Heart". The first pg in the document is directions for you to project on the smartboard so the students can read the directions. The next 6 pages are the copies you will put at each station. Each one lists a type of figurative language the students need to look for, a definition of the figurative language, an example from literature, and an explanation of the example. If the students can't find examples in the text based on that information, there is a hint at the bottom of each station's directions that gives them specific stanzas to look in. The last page of the document is a key for the teacher to use to guide the students as they work. The figurative language stations include simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia, personification, hyperbole, and imagery.
