The theme of a story is the underlying message that the story is trying to impart on the reader. This is the big idea of why the author took the time to write the piece. The setting is the time and place where the story is taking place. The setting serves as the backdrop of what is going on including the culture. The setting also leads us to understand the period in time that this story takes place. This can often lead us to better understand the motivations of the characters. These worksheets will help students learn the skill of understanding central themes and how to compare these between stories.
