Reflection: Real World Applications Theme - Section 3: Theme Related to "Daedalus and Icarus"


These activities were used to elaborate about theme in relation to “Daedalus and Icarus.”  There are many themes that could be discussed.  The same format could be used if you develop scenarios related to themes within numerous myths.

By giving the students the tools to discuss theme at a new level, I could observe their fulfillment in discussing these issues.  They are gaining confidence in discussing and applying lessons using higher order thinking skills.  Often it appears that they are surprised at their own knowledge and interpretations.
