This Analyze How a Text's Structure Impacts the Theme video also includes:
The ending of a text is the author's final word and last chance to reinforce his message. W.W. Jacob's ending for "The Monkey's Paw" is no exception to this rule. The narrator of the video takes a close look at the way the story closes by rereading the final paragraphs and relating these final words to the theme of the story. She takes it a step further by imagining an alternate ending and commenting on how that ending would alter the author's message. The idea is strong; however, the guided notes on the page do not correspond with the lesson, and the narrator has some pacing issues.
