Help students grasp the concept of theme with this rewrite of The Interlopers by Saki. The rewrite is especially beneficial to help lower-level readers experience great literature. Language is simplified and the wine flask becomes a water bottle, so this is perfect to use at the middle school level, too, in addition to using it with basic readers at the high school level. This way, you can spend your time helping students to focus on understanding what theme is instead of taking the time to figure out what precipitous means.
