Edgar Allen Poe Stories Come to Life for Students
Edgar Allen Poe Stories Come to Life for Students
Pam Gilliland

"The Monkey's Paw," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and "The Raven" all came to life for Mrs. Tami Brown's eighth grade English students when they attended the Boston Chamber Theatre's stage performances of these stories.  The students and Mrs. Brown traveled to Bolivar on Tuesday, October 17 to watch the theatrical presentations of stories they read in her English classes.  Comments from the students included:  "I enjoyed the plays because it helped me have more of a picture of what we read" (Harly);  "I liked watching the plays because they had an eerie feel to them" (Chloe);  "I liked the props they had for the stories" (Christian);  "I enjoyed how the actor sounded as if he was actually the character he was acting as" (Lily); and "I loved the costumes" (Christon).  Thank you to Mrs. Brown and the district for taking the students to see what they are reading come to life!
