A wide collection of topics that a scholar might find in the scope of a story, underscored by the phrase "Topic Plus Author's View Equals Theme". Use this page as a reference for your scholars as you get them to think, "What is this story really about?" This page helps to focus the scholar that meaning is not as much a matter of plot but, rather, the topic around which the author's built the story to send her/his message or observation about life.
