Unit 6 Name That Theme
In this short unit, you will spend three lessons exploring the importance of themes and main ideas in fiction and informational texts. You'll explore theme through O. Henry's classic short story "The Gift of the Magi" and consider how this piece compares to the main idea in the article "The Proven Power of Giving, Not Getting."
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
