This four page microsoft word document (completely editable) contains a two page lesson plan and a two page handout. It contains a graphic organizer great for visual learners, IEP, ESL students, and everyone in between.
I found, when teaching theme, that the biggest stumbling block was that the students didn't have a good grasp on what a topic was. So, I developed this detailed plan in order to build that bridge for them.
This lesson plan and handout can be used with ANY text that you are reading in class, at ANY time.
