Very detailed presentation/handouts for teaching theme. Will print horizontally.
For example: Rule #1 "theme must be expressible in a complete statement with a subject and a verb."
Each rule has explanations and an example.
Now included are flashcards with a rule printed on one side, and the rule # on the back. Cut and stick together and have students quiz each other, or just keep handy!
PLUS! You get a theme poster activity handout for use with any novel or story!
This can be used in conjunction with any novel unit, or in preparation for writing an essay. Geared toward higher-level middle school students, or high school.
