This is a decision chart that I use when teaching "Monkey's Paw". It is my attempt to teach common core standard RL 8.3. The standard mentions evaluating character's decisions. The characters in this story, specifically Mr. White, make some pretty radical decisions which warrant some analyzing. Also, after the students fill in the chart I have them write about a decision that Mr. White made. I have included an example piece of writing for that. This makes for a good discussion piece in class and can be worked on by one student or in partners. Also, I use this with my lesson on character reactions to show students the difference between a decision and reaction.
