This file contains three key documents that will help you teach Edgar Allen Poe's classic short story, "The Cask of Amontillado." The first document is a series of reader response questions that will help students make inferences, text-to-self connections and consider how Montresor is characterized. The second document is a student choice freewriting assignment. After reading the story, students can pick one of four prompts that will help them explore central moments in the story and will aid in sparking class discussion. I've also included a 10 question "DYRT" (Did Your Read This) quiz consisting of five multiple choice and five true/false questions.
