Product Description
It's all in the perspective!

This engaging assignment asks students to think critically about the events detailed by an unreliable narrator in Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart." Did the old man truly have no inkling of the narrator's hatred of him? Did the police officers really "chat pleasantly" as they interrogated the increasingly agitated man?

In the assignment, students must consider these questions and more, then write a short narrative through the perspective of either the old man or a police officer at the scene. The assignment is fun but more importantly, it leads to sophisticated discussion about the concept of an unreliable narrator. This is a perfect supplement for any unit on Edgar Allan Poe!
