Elements of Literature: Theme

Model for your learners how to recognize the theme of a story. After a brief lecture, class members use a provided graphic organizer to record notes on the title, characters, setting, and conflicts in Lucas Chavez's, "The Yaqui Doctor." Discuss with the class how these details reveal Chavez's theme. Consider extending the lesson plan with another short story and have individuals complete another graphic organizer and meet in groups to compare their notes.

Arin C.
It is very easy to quickly search a topic and get ideas from some of the lesson plans. For my student teaching seminar, we were required to share a web site that we have found helpful with the class. My professors, new and veteran teachers alike were all amazed by the resources provided by Lesson Planet and the ease in which they were obtained.
