This product is a graphic organizer that I use after teaching Orwell's 1984. Four prevalent topics from the text are listed to use as the basis for writing statements of theme. First, I have students individually gather evidence from the text for each topic. Then I have them get into groups and I assign each group to a topic. They develop statements of theme after discussing the evidence that they found. Then I regroup students so that each topic is represented within each group and have them share and discuss themes for all topics. This assignment would also work as an individual assignment.
