Finding Theme

How do you identify the theme in a piece of writing? Start small! Provide your class with the two selections presented here, and give them a graphic organizer. While a graphic organizer is provided, it is already filled in for the first selection. If you'd like to model the strategy of using details and events to create a theme, consider providing them a blank graphic organizer. Using these resources, you could either lead a guided practice or send learners off independently.

I love using Lesson Planet to add to and modify my existing plans and to get ideas for cross subject integration.
