PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This has been so helpful to get my students to understand theme!

Includes a student guide and a teacher's guide.

In this four page guide students will understand how to comprehend theme through recognizing what the protagonist in the story learns, and how to turn that into a thematic statement. It also teaches the difference between a theme and a moral, and includes a page for practicing with previous stories.

The teacher's guide has directions for the teacher on how to begin the lesson, what questions to ask students, and sample student responses.

Note: The short story, "The Necklace," is the main example used, but you can modify this for any short story. Included are the PDF's and word documents. The Word Documents will not open the correct font unless you have it downloaded on your computer:
