Students will try to identify the theme of this song.
Today’s objective is to review theme, how themes are developed, and to discuss emerging themes in #getlit books. For this activity, I have chosen 1-2 pages of text from a meaningful portion of the books the students are reading. I made photocopies for each student in the group. Then I introduced the idea of “black-out”poems. Each student will create a poem out of words that they leave white, while blacking out all of the other words. They look like this:
The goal is for students to try and capture the theme of their book with a poem. Students will share their poems, and discuss their thinking.
Students will discuss their poems, and then move onto working on their #getlit projects
