Tell-Tale Heart - After reading Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" students create a newspaper based on the events in the short story. My students really get into this assignment and I've had some amazing work turned in - it's a fun and creative way for them to demonstrate their understanding of the story!

A fun and engaging activity for a short story unit, unit on Edgar Allen Poe, or a writing activity around Halloween. EASY TO DIFFERENTIATE!
