Need a quick Common Core lesson? Sub plans? Homework? Keep the day simple with this lesson on teaching or reviewing THEME with “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant. Just print and hand out!
This lesson includes:
• Theme instruction sheet
• “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant, the text
• 15 short answer questions about the text (comprehension, inference, application)
• Answer key
Because the lesson begins with an instructional sheet explaining theme, the difference between topic and theme, and the guiding questions students can use to find the theme as they read, it can be used for in-class guided reading, independent work, or homework.
The scaffolded, open-ended questions after the text selection guide students through an analysis that allows them to discover the theme of the text.
And because it is formatted as a printable packet, students can do a close reading, taking notes on the text itself.
All files are in a .pdf format and ready to print.
