Step 2: Remind your students that they will be party planners when they begin this lesson. They will schedule a “fake” party with a theme of their choosing. Consider what kinds of parties they should throw, such as a Hawaiian theme, a 4th of July theme, a Super Bowl theme, a 90s theme, and so on. Encourage them to consider their invitation, menu, costumes/clothing, props/decorations, and events, among other things. This task can be completed either individually or in groups.
Step 5: After that, clarify that a theme in reading material is similar to a theme in their parties, with several specifics supporting a big concept. Tell them that detecting a pattern can be challenging at times, and that they must think like detectives and use hints from the story to do so.
Step 6: Begin by posing questions about the short story’s title. Tell them many times that the title contains hints about the story’s theme. “What is a scribe, what does he do, and why would this be important?” I asked my students, for example. “How does this assist you in identifying the story’s major themes?”
