Theme: How Do You Find It?

Theme continues to be an area we are working on in all my classes this year.  I realized that a great many adults don't really understand theme either.  Theme and Subject often get confused.  I tell my students the THEME is the life lesson that you can apply to your life and its universal!  Here is a great video from MISTER SATO on Theme.  Mister Sato does a great job of hitting the key points of how to go about finding THEME.  Enjoy!

Identifying the theme of a story can be challenging. It requires the reader to identify a main idea in the story. Then extend the idea to the real world. Fortunately, as with all reading skills, practice makes perfect.-www.ereadingworksheets.com
