Product Description
In this lesson, the students will be comparing the reactions of Mr. and Mrs. White in "The Monkey's Paw". They will use a chart to describe the reactions and pick from a character trait list to ascribe character traits that correspond to the reactions. Finally, they will write a paragraph about the mother's defining character trait. They will use a paragraph about the father's defining trait as a guide. This lesson works well in connection with my lesson on character's decisions. I use this to help the students understand the difference between a reaction and a decision. This story does a good job with both things.
