This culminating task is an opportunity for students to connect all the close reading they have done across the week. The question requires readers to connect their ideas from the different discussions that were not directly related to analyzing theme. Students will need to determine their own theme or message that the author was trying to convey, and support it by citing relevant evidence and explaining how their theme unfolds across a text. The sample answer provided takes the form of a 5-paragraph essay, which will require ample and thoughtful analysis. Special Materials: Student notes sheet Copies of the anchor text for all students
