Why Lesson Planet?
Teach your English learners about theme through this found poem project. Class members read two versions of O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi": the original version and a synopsis. After learning about themes and connecting theme to their own lives, learners will create a found poem of "The Gift of the Magi," focusing on a major theme and other literary elements. While some of the materials are missing, a synopsis of the story is included in additional materials.
