Setting and Theme

The reading for this resource is included, and it gracefully demonstrates how setting can reflect and illuminate the theme of a story. Learners read a brief excerpt from J.A. Jance's "Snowbird" and connect the vividly described Arizona desert to the life of a woman in a long-term marriage who has been reluctant to change. Only a few discussion questions are included, but the text lends itself so well to the instructional activity, it will be easy to build it into discussion and writing.

Lesson Planet is a very resourceful educational website; however most important is the fact that thousands of teachers are featured sharing hundreds of lessons that are practical, interactive, and functional.
