Script: Poe's Cask of Amontillado
Product Description
Edgar Allen Poe’s The Cask of Amontillado in an 8 page .PDF reader’s theater format plus 9 slide Power Point and .PDF with visual dictionary of vocabulary words, writing prompts, projects, lesson plan ideas and interactive game and quiz about Poe. Also included is a How to do reader’s theater .PDF.

The script is set 50 years in the future when a body is found and Montresor is on trial for murder of Fortunato. Witnesses are called and parts of the story are reenacted. It is up to those watching AND reading to serve as jurors to decide if a crime has been committed. Students then read the story to see if the verdict they chose was valid.

Makes an excellent pre-reading activity not only to provide a reason to read Poe's version but also to introduce vocabulary from Poe’s time period.
