A Directed Listening-Thinking Activity for “The Tell-Tale Heart”

In this lesson, students participate in a Directed Listening–Thinking Activity (DLTA), in which they listen to “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe and answer prediction questions at designated stopping points during the reading. Students then discuss and write a written response to the story at the conclusion of the lesson, in the form of either an acrostic poem or comic strip. This lesson works well at Halloween or at the beginning of a mystery unit.
