This word sort includes 25 vocabulary terms from "The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe. Before reading the story, I give students a small baggy containing all of these terms. I then ask them, in partners, to arrange them into three categories: 1. I know really well, 2. I sort of know, and 3. I don't know at all. This functions well as a pre-reading activity since it gets students familiar with the difficult terms they will find in the story.
