student storytelling

Post-Halloween: Edgar Allan Poe Short Stories

I assigned to retell in a dramatic storytelling one of Edgar Allan Poe's 
short stories. Today we did half of the class and ALL , yes all, dazzled
and frightened us and bursts of laughter erupted.  Poe's writing is macabre 
and horror reigned. I am most impressed with resourcefulness, imaginations, 
and creativity. Fabulous dialects, costumes ( just putting on a cloak 
changes everything) , and props ( even an ipad showing different animals)---

 My daughter and another student ( the one in the post below)
did the same story:  THE BLACK CAT.
