Para la próxima exposición oral que haréis a finales del mes de enero vamos a acercarnos a la literatura de autores de habla inglesa. Tendreis que leer un cuento de algún afamado autor, ilustrarlo como más os guste y contarlo en inglés al resto de la clase.
Para apoyar vuestro relato podeis utilizar una Presentación de Power Point  o cualquier otro sistema que os apetezca. Lo importante es que todos comprendan vuestro cuento cuando lo conteis en inglés.
Recordad también que debereis hacer una breve introducción sobre el autor y su época.
Estos son los cuentos que tendreis que leer y contar:

José Alberto Aragonés contará La carta robada, de Edgar Allan Poe.
Dolores Carrero, Elisabeth Corrales y Gema Corrales contarán William Wilson, de Edgar Allan Poe.
Jesús Díaz-Pavón y Eduardo Corrales contarán Berenice, de Edagar Allan Poe.
Esther García-Navas y Natalia Menasalvas contarán El Príncipe Feliz, de Oscar Wilde.
Ana Jula contará El ruiseñor y la rosa, de Oscar Wilde.
Carlos Martín Viveros y Pilar García-Miguel contarán El corazón delator, de Edgar Allan Poe.
Antonio Muñoz, Adrián de Molina y Alberto Aranda contarán El armario viejo, de Charles Dickens.
Javier Patiño contará Los crímenes de la calle Morgue, de Edgar Allan Poe.
Antonio Javier Ramos y Jesús Díaz-Plaza contarán El famoso cohete, de Oscar Wilde.
