Virtures- Prudence, justice, Fortitude, and Temperance

Directions

The interview between the narrator and the three policemen at the end of “The Tell-Tale Heart” is given in summary form. Adapt that scene into a dialogue, and create a "goanimate" for it. Go to goanimate.com and use the FREE account. I know the characters and scene won't match, but your conversation should.
