New and improved!! Theme or "the message" is often difficult to determine. Since most students are familiar with Disney Movies, the best way to teach theme is to introduce them by exploring theme in Disney movies first. This document is meant to be used as an engaging discussion starter with groups of students or as an independent assignment. A compare and contrast table is also included. This is a twist on the traditional Venn Diagram. You may choose to have the students fill in the chart with the categories included or add your own. I also added a compare and contrast table that is blank so you can choose the items you want the students to compare and contrast.
