This Teaching Themes resource contains:
There are three sets of passages in this resource in addition to the 16 half-page task cards.
Set 1: This set includes 5 shorter and less complex passages. These are perfect for introducing and practicing determining the theme prior to moving to the lengthier, more complex passages.
Set 2: This set includes 4 stories that are lengthier and more complex than Set 1. Each story also contains one page of additional questions. The additional questions are to be used at your discretion. The additional questions do not address the concept of theme, but they may help the students understand the plot of the story.
Set 3: This set includes 3 paired stories for students to practice comparing themes used in different stories. Each pair of stories has the same/similar theme but is developed/presented in a different way.
