Goals: 1. To review the concept of theme, and connect it to a piece of literature
Opener: Take a new opener sheet, and remember to use dark blue or black PEN. Read the themes on the back of the study guide for “The Veldt,” and choose 1-2 of them. Brainstorm what these ideas might mean, and some ways “The Veldt” might comment on them. Additionally, you can continue brainstorming some ways other stories might have similar ideas in them, like you did Friday, but I want you to focus on these themes.
