The basic message an author is trying to get across to readers is called the theme. The theme usually centers on a major event or problem that the main characters experience. When you are the audience and you are focused on grasping the author's message, it is important to read through the work and highlight the problem and solution of the story. Try to get a deep understanding of who the characters are to truly get an idea of where they are going with it. These worksheets will help understand the themes that are displayed in a story, drama, or poem.
