PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Theme is a difficult concept for many students to understand: it goes beyond the superficial to something deeper in meaning, and considering that many students have not experienced much of life and what it means to be human; understanding this more layered meaning in literature is perplexing for students and difficult for educators to teach. Using the wonderful short story by James Hurst, “The Scarlet Ibis,” as the vehicle to teach theme promotes understanding and success. A list of possible themes is provided to scaffold student learning. Students’ choose one and support and defend. “The Scarlet Ibis” promotes an excellent opportunity to explore many literary elements such as character traits, motivation, the importance of setting as time and place, and certain emotions within us all that are often just beneath the surface, but which connect us as flawed and fragile, or in other words, human. Enjoy and best, Rockermom
