PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These theme writing activities (part of my Blood on the River novel unit) goes along with Elisa Carbone's Jamestown novel Blood on the River. The file contains a graphic organizer with two themes that are prominent in the story (working together/interdependence and choosing love over fear and anger). Students have to read carefully to find supporting details - such as character quotes, descriptions, and novel events - for each. There is a paragraph-writing page as well as a two-page essay outline that will guide students to write an analysis of one of the themes.
Finally, for more advanced students, there is a blank theme graphic organizer for students to use to find their own themes in the novel and support them with text evidence.
This is a great way to draw students' attention to the messages that connect events in the novel as well as the important lessons that modern readers can learn from history, all through the skills of careful reading, finding text support, and planning organized writing!
