The short story "The Cask of Amontillado," by Edgar Allan Poe is an effective venue for teaching English I literary terms.

This lesson assumes that the literary terms have already been introduced. However, if they have not, the teacher may use this lesson to introduce these terms in the context of the literature.

The Frog Prince - Compare and Contrast
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
2.0 stars

This lesson can be used with numerous pieces of literature, videos or cassette material to develop viewing and listening skills and the students ability to compare and contrast. One of the richest sources is in the area of fairytales and folktales. This an especially good source if you can find a modernized version in video or cassette form to contrast with the more traditional written form. I have used the "Frog Prince" because of this factor and because it was part of the 4th grade language arts reading unit.
