Belle Teal

       At the end of the story, Belle Teal determines to "accentuate the positive" even though she can't "eliminate thee negative."  What are the positive elements in her life? Will they be enough to overcome the problems that still bother her?

       Answer these questions, giving your opinion and using evidence from the text. Use good mechanics; be thorough!

This week you are to respond to one of the following questions in your comment. Read the question carefully. Then respond in complete sentences with correct punctuation and capitalization.

If you read "The Purloined Letter," do you have any ideas about where the letter was hidden? Could the police have missed it, or might it be hidden somewhere else entirely?  Give evidence from the story section to support your answer.

If you read "The Red-Headed League," tell us what you found strange or unusual in Mr. Wilson's story.  Give evidence from the story section to support your answer.
