Product Description
This PowerPoint has been an excellent tool I have used to introduce, reteach, or strengthen truisms and theme in my students' writing.

Students will be able to:
- Define truisms and theme
- Identify strong truisms as well as weak ones
- Recall themes and truisms from familiar films
- Create original truisms from short film examples as well as symbolic pictures
- Recreate these strong truisms with expository text in mind

(Included in this PowerPoint are movie clips, movie themes, application practice activities.)

This lesson has strong application in writing truisms in expository text, but it could also easily be adapted for personal narratives or short stories.
