Product Description
Teaching an abstract topic like "theme" to middle school kids can be a legitimate challenge. In this lesson, you'll discover how to lead students to come to an understanding of theme inductively. And, in so doing, you'll also provide a powerful rationale for your class disciplinary policies.

This lesson provides two versions of an ultra-high interest short story called "The Law of the Land," by published author Wayne Thomas Batson (that's me, so no copyright issues). During the story, students will inductively learn about theme. At the same time, students will understand at last why your class rules aren't just helpful but of critical importance.

You can use this lesson at the beginning of the year to introduce class policies while hitting a Common Core goal...or anytime you want students to get a better understanding of the concept of "Theme."

25+ pages of Instructional Material are included: full lesson plans, two instructional level story versions, and additional lesson seeds (ideas for enrichment and subsequent lessons).
