Elements of Literature: Theme

An excerpt from Arturo Hernandez’s Peace in the Streets: Breaking the Cycle of Gang Violence provides seniors with an opportunity to determine and test the validity of a work’s theme. In this mini-activity, readers are asked to compare the truths that Hernandez reveals about teenagers to the truths they have learned through their own experiences. Consider extending the activity with a passage from a work under study.
