Mr. Narrator is being charged with murder after killing his neighbor due to his "evil eye." Is he truly insane, or did he know the consequences of his actions? This listing is for the student handouts for each role in The Tell-Tale Trial. This includes five witness statements (embellished from details in Poe's story) and handouts for each role in the trial. Roles include witness, direct attorney, cross attorney, opening statement, and closing statement. Also includes a jury worksheet and performance scale to grade students.These worksheets give examples of questions to ask and guide students through the script-writing process.
