For the reading selection:

    1. Clearly state in your own words the “surprise ending” in the reading you

      would be.
    2. Since you were expecting a different ending, evaluate how successful the
      author was in convincing you to accept the validity of the “surprise ending”
      that was not clearly suggested at the beginning.
