Theme Comprehension: Beyond the Details
Lord, Kathleen M.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v50 n4 p181-184 2014
Even though theme is cited in two of the 10 Common Core Standards for Reading Literature, little is written on how to teach it. Determining theme while reading a story is a critical element of reading literature, yet some children simply struggle. The instructional strategies presented here are designed to hone students' theme awareness and theme comprehension skills while reading or listening to children's literature.
