This presentation explores theme in literature and teaches students how to discover the theme of a work. Talks about universal "big" ideas, how to work from the big idea to find the theme and includes practice for some well-known stories.
Originally designed for use with my ESL Language Arts class, this powerpoint can be helpful for teaching any class about themes in literature.
