→ What is theme?

The presentation also uses some examples of movies and popular songs (with links to videos) to illustrate what a thematic statement looks like. Access to YouTube required.

• A thematic statement graphic organizer where students apply their understanding of theme to any reading you are studying (or have already studied) in class.
