Students in Mrs. Larman’s class anticipate Tuesdays. Every week, Mrs. Larman designs and makes a shirt to complement the lesson they are learning for the week. . Recently, students studied the writings of Edgar Allan Poe. Larman chose the short story, The Tell Tale Heart. Larman wore her shirt that read, “I’m a POEt and didn’t even know it!” and completed the ensemble with Poe earrings. After reading the story, the class had a mock trial where they put the narrator on trial. Students then had to be on the jury and determine if he was guilty or insane. Students were then instructed to write an argumentative essay stating their sides and proving, with evidence, their claim.
