We will continue reading Edgar Allen Poe this week-first “The Black Cat” and then “The Cask of Amontillado.” You should have your own story printed and ready for class by Wednesday of this week since we did not get to it last week. You will have a vocabulary check by the end of the week. At this point, you should have at least 45 words at the very minimum. We will be exploring a variety of reading strategies and activities during the reading of the Poe stories. I hope you enjoy!
