This Analyze the Development of a Theme Over the Course of a Text video also includes:
Authors make intentional choices about character and theme. Ask individuals to track a character's actions over the course of a text in order to determine the relationship between characters and theme. The video models how to do this with Mr. White from "The Monkey's Paw." The narrator draws a timeline, filling it out with the main actions of Mr. White. She looks at the change in Mr. White's actions and relates this to the theme. Spend some time figuring out the theme as a class before viewing the video and extend the lesson with the provided guided notes, which call for an examination of Mrs. White.
