A reverse method of teaching theme to students. This power point presentation helps to define what a theme is and show the differences between theme vs. topic (an often confused concept) for students. Students are given a theme to build a story line around. Teachers present the lesson using this power point with a full "I do, we do" portion of the lesson. I have used sample themes on strips of paper in a bucket where students then self-select a theme from the bucket and create their own story line to match the theme selected in order to demonstrate understanding for the "you do portion of the lesson. Extremely effective when presented in this manner.
