Today in class, we went over the response to literature questions for "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allan Poe. Then, several groups shared out their "Movie Plotting" assignments with the class.
Then, we watched a video of real-life survival stories in which people behaved similarly to the characters in the stories we have been reading. Lastly, some classes did an additional survival scenario activity involving being lost at sea.
The homework from today's class is to read "To Build a Fire," by Jack London, and complete the response to literature questions for this story.
