Reading Bundle #1
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
This mini-lesson uses the song "Cat's in the Cradle" by Harry Chapin to teach the following ELA READING LITERATURE STANDARD:

DETERMINE A THEME OF A TEXT AND ANALYZE ITS DEVELOPMENT OVER THE COURSE OF THE TEXT, INCLUDING RELATIONSHIPS TO THE CHARACTERS, SETTING AND PLOT.

This classic song has it all-- theme, allusions, dialogue and plenty of tear-jerking regrets. Students will pay close attention on how the theme was developed across the entire song. Use it as a mini-lesson before applying the same steps to larger pieces of literature that you are currently studying in class. This FIVE-PAGE handout is ready to print-and-use and would make a wonderful Substitute Lesson Plan.

The packet includes:
+ A note-taking page that introduces the standard and why it is important
+ A handout that walks students through analyzing theme development
+ Copy of Song Lyrics with annotation guide
+ Handout that requires an inference-based writing response
+ Teacher Answer Key for every section
