Reflection: Joy Frozen: Understanding Theme - Section 1: Analyzing Lyrics to Tease Out Theme


Students are very interested in the movie "Frozen" so I leveraged their interests in this movie to teach a lesson about theme.  I projected the opening song from the first scene titled The Ice Workers Song and read it to the students.  Then we watched the opening scene.  Then we went back to the text and analyzed it for the movie's theme.
