I am always looking for neat extensions to anything. Yesterday, a few English teachers and I were discussing a few of our favorite short stories. I mentioned William Faulkner's A Rose For Emily. Someone mentioned she shows Tanya Tucker's Delta Dawn video and discusses the similarities between the characters Delta Dawn and Miss Emily.
Then someone mentioned The Cask of Amontillado and I mentioned Toby Keith's "It's a Little Too Late" and how these two settings are the same. Then as a class we also mentioned irony.
