Works of literature frequently include more than one theme. Often, authors will structure the story so that two or more themes will build on one another. When this happens, each theme helps to further develop the other so that, when considered together, the reader can get a more complex understanding of how each theme functions in the text.
In this playlist, students will learn how to:
- Identify topics and use attention to detail to analyze how topics develop into themes.
- Identify and analyze two themes that build on one another.
- Think critically about how two themes work together to produce a more complex understanding of the other theme.
