This lesson plan could take 2-3 days depending on how long your periods are. First, students are given direct instruction on theme. Then, there are two models on how to identify theme. This lesson includes 5 guided practice partner activities for finding theme as well as an extension activity for analyzing theme in movies and books that allows for some student choice. This resource includes my lesson plan (and pacing), a full answer key for the guided practice, and student examples from the extension activity in the PDF/Powerpoint.
