Agenda 4/3/2017



Bell Work

  1. If you have not already done so, complete your Psychiatric Evaluation of the unnamed narrator in The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe.
    • Criminals sometimes undergo a psychiatric evaluation during which their mental health is reviewed by a psychologist. If the narrator of this story underwent such an evaluation, what might the health experts say about his state of mind? Based on details from the story, write a ONE PAGE profile of the narrator by answering the following questions- RACE paragraphs are suggested:
      • What crime did he commit?
      • What was his motive? Was he insane, enraged, seeking revenge, or something else?
      • Do you predict that the narrator will take responsibility for his crimes? Why or why not?
      • What evidence, based on the narrator’s account of events, supports your theory?
