I can understand what a theme of a novel, or series, is and apply my understanding of that theme to the current novel in a trilogy or series.
Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to the characters, setting, and plot; provide an objective summary of the text.
- What do you think this story will be about?
- What does the title of the story tell you about the story?
- What other books have you read by this author?
- What would you want to know about the story before reading?
