Product Description
"The Cask of Amontillado" Textual Evidence Mingle → Editable files! Revised in July 2016.

My students thoroughly enjoyed this textual evidence lesson designed to accompany a reading of “The Cask of Amontillado”—yours will, too! This lesson is for students who have already completed one reading of Poe’s short story. Each student will complete a warm-up discussion activity and then receive a single statement to prove or disprove using textual evidence from the story. Students will then stand up with their statements and evidence to mingle around the room, finding different discussion partners. I use music during my mingle activities—I’ve included a link to “Bailando” by Enrique Inglesias within the PowerPoint. ♫

Following the mingle activity, students will participate in a review game to assess their understanding of the events in the text. For the review game, students will need at least one computer device per small group in order to participate (phone, tablet, computer, etc.). The review game link is included in the lesson PowerPoint.

Finally, students will complete an exit ticket which requires them to compare and contrast Poe’s story with a Toby Keith music video. This last activity provides a great opportunity for free discussion of other literary elements at work (tone, mood, author’s purpose, etc.). ♬

If you are looking for a fun, hands-on activity to deepen your students’ understanding and appreciation of “The Cask of Amontillado,” you really can’t go wrong with this lesson! ❤️
