What is it?
It’s not a topic…

 Love…War…Hatred…Racism
    are topics, not themes.
But you can make a
topic a theme…
What perceptions about these topics
and their relationship to human life
          can you make?
Let’s start with
     LOVE
Now, let’s do WAR
Moving onto Hatred
And finishing up
with RACISM…
How do you find the
theme?
  Check out the title
  Look for repetitions of words or ideas
  Check out how characters change and
   what they learn
  What references are made throughout
   the story
  Analyze the plot
  Check out the setting
