Product Description
9th grade students, who are not quite reading at grade level, often struggle with reading the works of Edgar Allen Poe. Although they love the dark Gothic subject matter, Poe's vocabulary and syntax often leaves younger readers in their own state of "darkness".

With this opening activity, students will focus on the very first paragraph of Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" and conduct a close reading by:

-making a personal connection
-asking a question
-defining unknown words
-paraphrasing

Students can then use the same reading tactics throughout the rest of the story to gain a better understanding of their reading.
