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 instructional activity with another short story and have individuals complete another graphic organizer and meet in groups to compare their notes.
