ALL YOU NEED TO TEACH THEME!
7 mini-lessons (78 pgs. of Google Slides) to help students understand how to find the THEME of their stories. Understanding the theme of a text can be tricky, and students need very explicit strategies for how to go about finding the THEME of a text. Use these lessons to ensure ALL students in your class will be able to accurately find the THEME of their text, and use evidence from the text to support their thinking. This product includes the following mini-lessons for THEME...
**FIND THE THEME
**DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLOT AND THEME
**GIVING CHARACTERS ADVICE TO FIND THE THEME (PART 1 AND PART 2)
**NOTICING WHEN CHARACTERS REFLECT TO FIND THE THEME
**NOTICING SYMBOLS TO HELP DETERMINE THE THEME
**USING THE BACK COVER BLURB TO DETERMINE THE THEME
These slides are EDITABLE so you may use a book of your choice if you prefer! I find that teaching my lessons digitally (instead of simply writing on an anchor chart) allows my students to be more engaged, and I can include fun photos, videos in order to enhance the lessons, and can save my lessons from year to year! Enjoy these slides and if you have any questions please feel free to send me a message through TpT!
