The assignment for this lesson is to write an explanatory essay about "The Monkey's Paw" by W. W. Jacobs. Your essay must show how the foreshadowing in the story claim.
You must use evidence from the story to support your claim. Most often, a claim can follow the words "I'm going to explain how (or why) . . . "
Once you make a claim, you've got to support it with evidence. For your evidence in an explanatory essay, you'll use excerpts taken directly from the text you're writing about.
