The students read Edgar Allan Poe's famous horror short story The Tell Tale Heart. One of my favorites, this will work its way onto Edmodo as an assignment due on Tuesfay of next week.
A) write a strong paragraph that discusses the theme of "going to extremes".
B) write an argumentative paper explaining your stance on the question "should murderers be allowed to plead insanity to avoid punishment?"
C) 6-8 people create a script and act out a mock trial of the murderer from The Tell Tale Heart.
