When I taught Isabel Allende's short story, And of Clay Are We Created, the Holt textbook only provided a basic graphic organizer called "Steps to a Theme." Never liking bare-bones organizers, or having another layer of instruction for the activities I assigned, I adapted the worksheet to be more specific to AoCAWC. Since I only "Helped" Holt with this improved organizer, it's not right that I charge other teachers for it.
The worksheet is labeled with the appropriate Common Core Standards on Themes.
The worksheet includes possible answers compiled from previous students' discussion and writing.
