I need help with this question. I just don't understand what it's asking me. Could someone tell me how I should start it, please? Thank you!

Writers often communicate their themes by building clues into the story. Choose one story from Collection 4 and show how the author uses characterization, title choice, and key passages to develop the theme of the story. Use examples from the story, including quotes from the key passages you choose.

The stories are:
Helen on Eighty-sixth Street
Marigolds
Blues Ain't No Mockin Bird

    First, choose a story.

    Decide what the theme of the story is. What message was the author trying to get across?

    Then follow the rest of the directions to support your answer above.

    Thank you Ms. Sue!
