Parent Guide: The Monkey’s Paw

This week in class, we’re reading “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs.

In “The Monkey’s Paw,” a man ignores the warnings of an old friend and makes a wish that brings misery upon his family.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Death and Fate & Free Will as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

“How do people face death?” and “Can we control our fate?”
