  • Product Description
  • Standards
In need of further assessment of certain standards? These worksheet templates can be used with ANY piece of literature.

The first worksheet is for summarizing certain portions of the text for further analysis. The students analyze main characters, certain important events, etc., that point towards certain themes evident in the text.

The second worksheet is for analyzing themes. The students take a look at specific themes in the literature and point out evidence toward each theme. Students need to be as thorough as possible, dissecting the information to determine how the theme is evident in the story.

There is also an informational handout to help students understand how to identify themes in a story, with examples and definitions to guide them through the process!

These two worksheets can be used to fulfill the requirements of mastery of standard RL:2. They can be used for multiple pieces of literature for learning the standard, or simple refreshing of the objective.

Included in this product:
*TWO Worksheet for identifying THEMES in the story!
*ONE Informational Handout for defining and understand themes!
