  1. 1. March 9, 2011<br />Literature: Finish “The Tell-Tale Heart”<br />New Story: “All Summer in a Day”<br />
  2. 2. Housekeeping<br />Hand in vocab paragraph <br />
  3. 3. “The Tell-Tale Heart” Literary Elements Activity<br />You will need:<br />“The Tell Tale Heart” Story and Questions<br />Handout: “Reviewing Story Elements”<br />Handout: “Fiction Terms”<br />
  4. 4. “The Tell-Tale Heart” Literary Elements Activity<br />In your assigned group, work through the questions on “Reviewing Story Elements.” (Not for marks; for study purposes)<br />Discuss how each element applies to the story “The Tell-Tale Heart.” <br />Refer to the “Fiction Terms” handout as needed.<br />Refer to the information on Point of View on the bottom of p. 143 of “The Tell Tale Heart” questions handout.<br />Ask me for help/clarification as needed.<br />If you disagree with your group, make note on your sheet and we will discuss <br />Time: 30 minutes<br />
  5. 5. Class Review of Literary Elements<br />Point of View (POV )<br /> First person point of view, probably male<br />We know the narrrator/character’s thoughts and feelings directly.<br />We can only take his word for it that the events are true<br />he is an “unreliable narrator” – a narrator whose version of the story details may be misleading <br />we don’t have any description about him, we don’t know what he looks like, or any background information about him or the setting<br />
  6. 6. Class Review of Literary Elements<br />Setting <br /> in the bedroom of the old man, in a house<br />probably North America<br />probably early 20th or late 19thcentury (he uses a non-electric lamp)<br />It could happen anywhere because it is about the mind of the narrator<br />But it needs to take place where the two men live together or near each other so that the narrator has easy access to the old man’s room <br />
  7. 7. Class Review (Cont’d.)<br />Characters - is the narrator round or flat?<br />evidence for round – we have lots of info: we know everything in his mind over lots of time – you feel that you know the character- understand how he/she feels and can predict what he tries to do next – first person pov helps to know him<br />evidence for flat – all we know is that he is crazy – he’s focused on killing the old man – obsessed about that one thing. - his main quality is his selfishness and arrogance<br />
  8. 8. Class Review (Cont’d.)<br />Characters Dynamic vs. Static<br />Evidence for Dynamic – confesses his secret to the police - due to his increasing madness more than guilt<br />Evidence for Static – he wanted to commit the murder and he did it; he doesn’t regret it – he would probably do it again; he is proud of himself and what he has done; he doesn’t think he did anything wrong; his insanity made him confess<br />
  9. 9. Class Review (Cont’d.)<br />Conflict <br />internal conflict – character vs. himself<br /> narrator vs. his mental condition (to kill or not, to keep his secret or not)<br />narrator vs. his feelings/decision toward the old man (attraction vs. anger)<br />external conflict = character vs. character <br />– narrator vs. eye/old man<br />narrator vs. policeman<br />Foreshadowing <br />– “I can tell you how calmly” –this suggests he will tell us something that would normally be difficult to do calmly<br />– he makes several similar statements about the way he does things<br />
  10. 10. Class Review (Cont’d.)<br />Outcome <br />Negative <br />– he got caught – he didn’t get away with his crime<br />Positve<br />– his confession relieved him of his mental pain<br />– He got rid of the pressure of the eye; he was satisfied with his actions<br />Theme<br />Sometimes we can harm others without an acceptable reason.<br />It is difficult to live with your crimes, sooner or later they will emerge.<br />(Other themes are possible, but they must be based on the details and overall meaning of the story)<br />
  11. 11. In-class Activity: For Discussion, p. 143 <br />Complete Question 2 and 4 and on your own. (5 marks each = /10 marks)<br />Title your work “The Tell-Tale Heart” – For Discussion. <br />Write your name on the top right hand corner.<br />Time: 30 minutes<br />
