Searching for themes...

Good morning,

I'm so glad to be back with you today. Our guiding question today is "How do I identify a theme of a text and how do I support that with evidence from the text?"

Our agenda is below.

  • Read
  • Review your reading of "The Story of an Hour".
  • Review the meaning and expectations about finding themes in literature. 
  • Meet with a group to brainstorm possible themes.
  • Submit your group's best ideas through this form.  (Please submit only one form for the whole group.)
  • As a class we will look at some of the themes you suggest. Be prepared to explain your thinking. 
Homework: By now you should have finished at least one book since school started. Write a review of it in Goodreads. Spend some time looking at the recommended book list to choose your next book.  Remember you must read TWO books per six week grading period, one you choose yourself and one from the recommended book list. 

Rhetorical square GO
