These mini-lecture slides were designed to help middle school and high school students learn to write strong themes when analyzing literature. This product includes four PDF slides that can be projected as you lead a short lecture on the elements of theme and help students practice with examples from Harry Potter and Shrek.
If you’d like to view a sample of how I present these slides to my freshmen, be sure to check out my TpT video
or the same video on my YouTube channel
that shows these theme-building slides in action.
