A theme is the main idea that an author wants to reveal to readers. Students need to decide what the themes are and how the author reveals them in his book.
Then, you will have them write an essay on a theme and provide examples backing up their main point of their essay.
When they have completed their essay, you will have them review it, edit it, and revise it before they submit it to you for grading.
