Elisas Diary: Finding Theme through Tableau

Using the Catch/Release Model


EQ: How can we identify and represent the theme of a story?
We chose to include the catch and release model using a single text due to the
complexity of the instructional focus and objectives.
Those being:
Objective #1: SWBAT: How can I determine the theme of a story?
Objective #2: SWBAT: Use characters thoughts and actions to help determine the theme of a
story.
Objective #3: SWBAT: Use imagery and visualization to understand the theme of a story.
Objective #4: SWBAT: Infer beyond the literal meaning of a text.
