This PowerPoint includes the opening to "The Cask of Amontillado." Students are to read the first line closely and use reading strategies (predict, question, visualize, evaluate, clarify, connect, and infer) to analyze the story. When the second line appears, they are to do the same thing again. They are to continue this process for each new line. Their thoughts on the story may (and probably will) change as more lines appear. It is important to not tell students the title of the story until the very end.
