8/4/21 – ELA – Theme

Virtual Learning

Today we discussed theme and what the themes of some classic stories are. We also finished reading our H.P. Lovecraft story, The Outsider. I want you to consider what the theme of the story we finished today is. Please use your notes from today and the story we read to complete the google form at the bottom of the page.


The theme of a story is the message or lesson the author is trying to teach. This is different than the main idea because the main idea is just the general topic of the text.
