-This package includes:
-Four page, four day lesson (.doc): The lesson plan is extremely detailed and comprehensive. The plan walks the teacher through all of the supplemental materials which include learning themes through fables, tracing the theme in the story "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant, directions on reading "The Necklace" with responsive reading techniques, directions on tracing the themes in "The Necklace", and finally detailed directions for a Socratic Seminar on the story.
-Theme through fables (.notebook and .pdf): This helps students understand the concept of theme through practice in groups, as a class and individually. This is extremely helpful for students. The fables are simple to understand as well as short. The notebook file is useful but I have included a .pdf just in case you do not have this technology.
-Theme through the Necklace: (.notebook and .pdf) This lesson reviews theme and then has students trace themes that occur in the story "The Necklace."
-The Necklace Socratic Seminar (.doc): Please feel free to use this format for a pile of other Socratic seminars that you create! I have included some difficult questions to help move the Socratic seminar along. This takes the entire period. I wrote specific sentence stems for students to use. One student bragged about our seminar to another teacher who wrote me an email to tell me about it.
