Engaging Students in Classic
Literature Through Use of Art,
Technology, and 21st Century Skills
Instructional procedures:

1. Students are introduced to "The Tell Tale Heart" by watching an animated clip of the story.
2. Then students read along while listening to audio of
"The Tell Tale Heart."
3. To assess their comprehension of the plot, students
create a 6-square comic with pictures that represent
the 5 most important events that make up the plot.
Directions
“Tell Tale Heart” Plot Comic

After completing the story “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, you are going to create a 6-square comic based on what you understand from the plot of the story.
Directions:

Getting your paper set for creating the comic strip boxes:

1. Using a white sheet of computer paper, fold it in half lengthwise or “hot dog” style and keep it folded.
2. Holding the paper horizontally, fold the right side one third of the way in and then fold the left side in so that you have the paper folded in to one square.
3. Then unfold the paper and you should see 6 squares.

Start your squares:

(Guidelines to think about before you begin…The title and author need to be included in one square. Your illustrations have to have color. Each illustration must have the corresponding passage written in the same square.)

1. Use the story to find passages that make up the five most important parts of the plot. Write these passages down on notebook paper.
2. Each of the five passages will be copied down in a small section of each square in the order that they occur.
3. Then draw the way you think these passages should look.
4. Using colored pencils, markers, or crayons, color each illustration.
Instructional procedures continued:

9. When the work is complete, the students reconvene with their groups and share and discuss their work.

10. Then the students turn in their work as well as the group evaluation. I evaluate each students performance as well, through a simple rubric based on how well they followed directions on their job card.

11. We wrap up the unit by watching an animated full version of "The Tell Tale Heart."
Instructional Procedures continued:

4. Then students are given one of four other Poe stories to explore through research and creation of a power point. The students work in pairs and research one of the following: "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Black Cat," "The Raven," or "The Masque of the Red Death."

Instructional procedures continued:

5. From their research, they create a 7-15 slide power point presentation including graphics and sound.

6. Once presentations are complete, the groups present their power points to the class. Each student will then evaluate the presentations through completion of a student evaluation paper.

7. Students then choose which of those 4 stories they would like to learn more about and from there, they are put into literature circles.

8. In groups of 4-6 each student completes his or her job for the literature circle group. This takes about 2 50 minute periods to complete the stories, then another 50 minute period to do the work.
