Theme as a Literary Concept

After looking at several jokes that contain a theme, an insight about life, class members are directed to find their own jokes to illustrate this concept. Consider following up this mini-lesson with a study of a short story or poem and modeling how to use the details in these works to determine the theme.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
