Finding Theme in Literature is a 70-page differentiated unit that may be used over a period of a week or one month. Portions may be used throughout the year, giving students the repeated experience of finding and proving a theme in their independent reading. This unit includes 12 fables (2 versions of each) and the many options for using the fables to introduce and teach theme, a list of themes for students to use and add to throughout the year, two pages on the method for finding theme in literature, practice finding theme, differentiated assessments with keys to check for understanding, text evidence proof frames to help students write about theme, a finale project for students to write their own fable and to create Smarter Balanced type assessments, Smarter Balanced question analysis, and much more.
This unit includes my smaller product Proving Theme Text Frames.
