Theme

Theme

Theme is the underlying meaning of the story. What can I ask myself to identify the theme?

If the theme is not stated, what kind of information will help me understand the theme?


Characters and setting

Characters and Setting

The characters and setting of a story can give us a lot of information about the theme of a story.

Turn to page EI-11 of your book.

Let’s read the first paragraph of “Alone” together.


Island of the blue dolphin

Read

Read the rest of the story Alone .

Create an organizer like the one on p. 84 to help describe the setting of the story.

Remember, you may have to use the details to help you infer the theme.


Character and setting

Character and Setting

The first paragraph of Alone mentions a wagon and a log cabin, so we know the setting is a long time ago in a wilderness area.

The title and the last word of paragraph 1 are both the word alone. So I can guess that the theme is about surviving alone.


Fluency

Fluency

With your partner read paragraph 1 of Alone for the next two minutes. Don’t stop until I tell you to.

Read aloud either together or one at a time.

Make sure to use good pacing and correct voice inflection
