Colum McCann: Let the Great World Spin Lesson on Theme-- offers step by step instructions to help students identify themes in the novel. I have included:
1. The formal written lesson plan for the teacher to follow.
2. An in-class example for the class to do together with the teacher
3. Four separate examples to be done in groups
4. An answer key supplying possible answers and interpretations that will help the teacher to lead the students.
Students must have read at least to page 20 for this lesson to be appropriate.
This product should be purchased together with my PowerPoint Presentation on Deriving themes in the novel.
I have used this lesson format during observations by my department head and have found the feedback very positive.
