Theme

The essence of what the story is about


Theme

  • A lesson or message about life.

  • A lesson or message about life.

  • A LESSON OR MESSAGE ABOUT LIFE!


UNIVERSAL THEMES

  • MESSAGES OR LESSONS ABOUT LIFE THAT CAN BE UNDERSTOOD ACROSS CULTURES AND LANGUAGES.

  • You get it, your parents can get it, an old man in China can get it, a woman in Africa can understand it….UNIVERSAL!

  • Examples:


Specific Themes

  • Anyone can identify it, but only a specific group of people truly understand it.

  • A message or lesson about life that only a small group understands fully, but everyone else gets the essence of.

  • Examples: Blacks fighting for their own freedom in the Civil War; Jews escaping NAZI persecution


Identifying theme

  • Focus on the big picture.

  • What does this story say or teach me about life?

  • What is something I can understand about this story even though I’ve never been in the situation?

  • How can I be sure this is the theme?


Let us Practice!

  • Movies: Spiderman (with Tobey Maguire, I know Andrew Garfield is cuter, but you’ll survive)

  • Books: Harry Potter series or Twilight (I know I need to read some new YA books, but alas I haven’t yet)

  • Songs: I knew you were trouble (Oh Taylor, where do you find your inspiration because all of your songs show so much variety!)


The Princess and all the kingdom

  • Think, pair, share!

  • Revisit the story.

  • What do you think the theme is? Remember theme is a message or lesson about life. This one should be a universal theme.

  • Find two quotes that you think support your theme.

  • When I signal share this with one person near you!
