PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This download includes the link to the public Google Doc presentation, accompanying student practice worksheet, and a short theme assessment.

Students will learn theme in 1 day (tested & true!). Students will first document the definition & purpose of theme, then, Using Values.com billboards, students will read informational text describing the events within the lives of several exceptional people. The teacher & class will work together to cite textual evidence from the website to support the given themes.
Afterwards, students will be given a billboard without a 'value' (AKA theme). They will read the passage about Jackie Robinson's triumphs and struggles, and will then formulate a theme from his story. Students will also be required to cite textual evidence to support their analysis.
This lesson required internet connectivity by the teacher, but can also be a fun activity for kids to follow along.
Lesson is core aligned & includes answer key/rubric.
