In class on Tuesday 10/30…

EVERYONE, read/listen to and annotate “The Raven.” If you want to GO ABOVE AND BEYOND: Create a found or black-out poem from “The Raven.” This is an option; this is an opportunity to go above and beyond.

If you DID NOT have class on Monday 10/29, read “The Tell-Tale Heart” and watch the first and second videos on the Tell-Tale Heart page.

Explore anything on the “Let’s Freak Ourselves Out” post — Edgar Allan Poe, the Donner Party, and ghosts, oh my!
