Lesson Plan

Description:

This lesson is part of a larger unit on "Coming of Age" novels. In this unit, students focus on the strategies of asking questions and making inferences, and they also gain familiarity with characterization analysis and analysis of theme.

In today's lesson, students will use a graphic organizer to practice identifying indicators of themes in a children's story, a short story and their independent reading books. Inside, you will find a detailed lesson plan, customizable student notes, an overhead transparency of the graphic organizer for use with the lesson, an overhead transparency of teacher-generated definitions of "theme," and an additional reproducible for students to complete independent practice identifying theme using their own novels.
