How do you find the THEME of a text, movie, poem, or song?
A theme is much more than just a single word,
it’s the idea about people that the author wants you to understand. How a character RESPONDS TO CHALLENGES and CHANGES how he/she responds to a challenge, is often tied to the theme of the book.
Here are some videos to help us understand theme:
