They all contain quizzes and other useful resources, and can be printed out in color, black and white, used as a slide show on a computer, or as a PDF on a tablet. They can also be used on a SmartBoard. Fun materials for an introduction to Frankenstein or use at Halloween!

    This comic book has been designed to provide a visual setting for the narrative of 'The Tell Tale Heart' that will help the student come to a better understanding of the storyline by supplementing the literary devices and symbols that Poe used when writing his famous short story. The language used has been slightly adapted and edited to suit the comic format. It can be printed for easy distribution, displayed as a slide show on a computer or used as an eBook on an iPad or other tablet.
