This one-page worksheet asks students to identify character, setting, and tone in Poe's short story, "The Tell Tale Heart". It also asks students to put 10 events from the plot in chronological order. Use it as a very basic introduction to literary terms using a gripping story that students love.
I provide this worksheet in .docx format so you can edit it for differentiation. For example, reduce the number of events, or provide hints by showing the correct sequence number for several of the events.
