Comparing Themes

Modern Fantasy

5th Grade


Connection

  • We have learned how to analyze a series of chapters, stanzas, or scenes to explain how they fit together to provide the overall structure of the story.

  • Understanding this structure helps us to interpret a theme in the text.


The ugly ducklingbad case of the stripes

  • Today we will compare and contrast stories on their approaches to similar themes and topics.

  • We are going to use the theme, “Be true to yourself” to analyze two texts.

  • Who can retell the story “Bad Case of the Stripes?”

  • Now let’s listen to “The Ugly Duckling.”

  • http://www.speakaboos.com/full-text/the-ugly-duckling/

  • this story has the same theme as A Bad Case of Stripes which is “Be true to yourself.”


  • A strategy we can use to compare and contrast how authors approach similar themes is to think about the pivotal moments that are present throughout the book.

  • What challenges do the characters face?

  • How do characters respond to the challenges they face?

  • We can record our ideas on a chart so that it is visually easier to compare and contrast the different approaches.

  • How have these different approaches altered your perceptions of this theme?


Guided Practice

  • You and a partner will complete the Comparing Approaches to Themes in Stories chart for both stories.

  • As you read stories on your own, take time to think about how they compare to other stories you have read with similar themes.

  • Making connections among texts, comparing and contrasting authors’ approaches to development of themes will help you gain a deeper understanding of a theme’s meaning.
