Reader's Workshop - 8B Homework

For those students who were absent today, as a result of illness or due to the ski trip, you will need to read the short story by Edgar Allan Poe, A Cask of Amantillado.  The story is here  https://americanenglish.state.gov/files/ae/resource_files/the_cask_of_amontillado.pdf and has been altered from the original to be at the middle school reading level. While reading you need to use the "questioning strategy" and search for the initial incident (probelm/conflict) and the climax (highest point of suspense/where the problem is solved).    You will also need to watch the video of The Cask of Amantillado, from youtube, as based on the original text by Edgar Allan Poe.  https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=cask+of+amantillado+film
